German Society in Toronto (Fall 1914)

As anti-German sentiment grew, the German community in Canada had to face financial hardship. Due to their German origin, they were often denied jobs. The German Society in Toronto was collecting donations in order to help “needy Germans” in Toronto and established a committee to find jobs for unemployed Germans. Furthermore, several charity organizations told the government about the economic problems of the German-Canadians, hoping for help.
