You and the Netherlands

This section contains links to general information about the Netherlands from statistics and the weather to the country’s government, history and national symbols.

If you’re coming to the Netherlands or have just arrived, see the information on visiting, living, working and studying in the Netherlands.

Do you live in Canada and do you want to vote as a registered Dutch citizen? Then follow the instructions on the special website "stemmen vanuit het buitenland" (voting from abroad). You have to register to vote by February 1, 2017.

Canada and the Netherlands share a long history and the Working Holiday Program (WHP) is a great way to celebrate this friendship. Young Canadians may use this exchange program to work in the Netherlands without the need for a work permit!
