About Us

The Danish Club of Ottawa was officially launched on June 5, 1975, by a group of Danes who wanted to celebrate, preserve and share their culture and heritage.

The Aims and Objectives of The Danish Club of Ottawa are to promote friendship, customs, traditions and other matters peculiar to Danish culture; to promote and foster good relations between Canada and Denmark; and to represent the interests and welfare of the Danish community in the National Capital Region. Last but not least, the aim is to bring people together – whether it be for a community project or a party.

The Club is non-sectarian and non-political. Moreover, it is a non-profit organization. The affairs of the Club are managed by a board of ten directors, who are elected yearly at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Members receive Viking News, the Club’s Newsletter, which is published about eight times a year. The Club offers a wide variety of events throughout the year, allowing members to get together and enjoy Danish traditions.

Over the years the Club has welcomed visitors from Denmark, many of them groups of young people such as Værløse Pige Garde, the Copenhagen Boys’ Choir and Holstebro Springpiger.

The Danish Club of Ottawa cooperates with various other organizations having similar objectives. The Club is a founding member and was the driving force in establishing the national umbrella organization: The Federation of Danish Associations in Canada.
