Saskatchewan German Council - Projects


Settlements in Saskatchewan The Settlements in Saskatchewan project involved the publication of maps giving graphical representations of the settlement patterns of German communities in Saskatchewan. The project was supported by the Saskatchewan German Council Inc., the Saskatchewan Centennial, Heritage Canada, and Saskatchewan Lotteries.

The settlement information was taken from a 1990 graphic drawn by H. Heimann. The information was compiled by Dr. A. B. Anderson, a professor of Sociology at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, SK. The 2005 enhanced map was compiled and digitized by B. Stehwein, P. Geo.

SGC Immigrant Settlement Handbook In the face of the growing number of German speaking immigrants to Saskatchewan, and the growing need for immigration and settlement assistance, the Saskatchewan German Council Inc. has launched the SGC Immigrant Settlement Handbook Project to provide immigrants with a guide to settling in Saskatchewan. The handbook includes information on immigration, housing, employment, education and childcare, health and emergency services, legal services, recreation and cultural services, as well as consumer information such as food and groceries, transportation and banking.

The handbook contains information on local communities with a large population of German-speaking descent, including Prince Albert, North Battleford, Lloydminster, Regina and Saskatoon, as well as smaller communities such as Leader, Humboldt, Melville and Estevan.

The SGC Immigrant Settlement Handbook was published in 2009 in German and English. A second, revised edition was published in 2012 and is available at the office in Saskatoon

German Cultural Tradition Books The Saskatchewan German Council wanted to promote German customs that occur throughout the year. Four books have been composed that explain traditions and give insights as well as recipes and art & craft ideas. The books are call "Weihnachten - Christmas", "Ostern - Easter", "Karnival - Carnival", and "Verschiedene Tradition - Various Traditions". The books are written in English and German and includes coloured pictures. They can be purchased at the office in Saskatoon.

Famous quotes containing the word projects:

    One of the things that is most striking about the young generation is that they never talk about their own futures, there are no futures for this generation, not any of them and so naturally they never think of them. It is very striking, they do not live in the present they just live, as well as they can, and they do not plan. It is extraordinary that whole populations have no projects for a future, none at all.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    But look what we have built ... low-income projects that become worse centers of delinquency, vandalism and general social hopelessness than the slums they were supposed to replace.... Cultural centers that are unable to support a good bookstore. Civic centers that are avoided by everyone but bums.... Promenades that go from no place to nowhere and have no promenaders. Expressways that eviscerate great cities. This is not the rebuilding of cities. This is the sacking of cities.
    Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)
