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
