Welcome to Canada Meets Germany (CMG), a department of the ICD that works to explore, raise awareness of, and strengthen relations between Canada and Germany at all levels. The department is responsible for the development and support of three separate but complementary fields of activity:
“Canada Meets Germany: A Forum for Young Leaders” is an ongoing Young Leaders program that provides an opportunity for an interdisciplinary group of Young Leaders from Canada and Germany to explore the relationship between the two countries in more detail and build sustainable networks with each other.
CMG Weeklong Seminars are weeklong programs of lectures, seminars, workshops, and cultural and social excursions that take place in Berlin every 3-4 months. These Weeklong Seminars are open to applications from any individuals with an active interest in Canadian-German relations.
CMG Program Activity includes activity organised by the ICD throughout the year that focuses on the Canadian-German relationship, ranging from film screenings to panel discussions. This field also includes activity and research conducted by CMG Network members with the support of the ICD (“leadership initiatives”).
