Symbol of Friendship

Tulips are a symbol of friendship between Canada and the Netherlands and every year Dutch tulips bloom in Ottawa. Tulips are a Dutch pride. The Dutch flower industry is driven by solid knowledge and innovation. They also formed the inspiration for the first Canadian Tulip Festival.


Wavedeck Toronto

For centuries, Dutch creativity has inspired others. Dutch design is often described out-of-the-box and adhering to the 'less is more' principle. The Simcoe WaveDeck at Toronto’s water front is a whimsical timber boardwalk, inspired by the shorelines of Ontario’s Great Lakes.


Dutch Heritage

Spring is the best time to celebrate the rock solid friendship between the Netherlands and Canada. We have put together the Spring 2014 edition of our annual Touch of Dutch calendar of events. Follow the links to download the full listings in PDF.
