German Settlement Experience in Canada

I came across this article about the German Catholic community in Toronto. I was struck by the similarity between their situation and what I know about the German Catholics in Regina. I particularly noted the same mutual aid organizations they brought with them from Europe: the benevolent societies, funeral societies, and credit unions. There are many parallels here, including the eventual scattering and decline of the communities.
