The Danish Canadian Society “Dania”
We are a Danish social and cultural club in Edmonton & area for Danes & people of Danish descent
Dania’s 100th Anniversary
Dania was formed in Edmonton in 1921 and is the oldest Danish social and cultural club in Canada. We were proud to mark this 100-year milestone in 2021, however, due to the pandemic, Dania’s regular social functions have been cancelled. Looking to the future, we want to be able to come together for a dance or a campout so we need all of our members and friends to continue to support Dania now and in the coming years.
We plan to hold a 100-year celebration hopefully in October 2022 if restrictions allow, so please stay tuned for more information on this.
Purchasing or renewing your membership now will help to ensure that Dania continues to be your place to go to enjoy a little piece of Denmark in Edmonton!
Did you know that you can pay your Annual Membership dues on our website?
(Dania’s membership year runs from November 1 to October 31)
Dania sends out a newsletter called The Danish Bulletin about 4 times per year, but during the pandemic, we have not been as regular with our newsletter. Please think about joining our mailing list so that once we start our functions again, you can learn all about what we are doing in the Danish community of Edmonton and area.

Volunteer With Us!
Have you ever considered volunteering with Dania? If you want to, but not sure how you could help, please drop us a line and we’ll chat about it because, without volunteers for the Board of Directors and our events, there would be no Dania!! If you have ideas that you want to see come to fruition, please get involved.
