THE IMPOSSIBLE HOME: Robert Kroetsch and his German Roots
Question 3
In the 1991 Census, the ethnic origin most reported for Canada was German.

True. According to the 1991 Census, Germany was the highest reported ethnic origin with 911,560 single responses. One in ten Canadians acknowledged at least some amount of German in their ethnic background - not a surprising ratio since German Canadians are Canada's third oldest and third largest ethnic group of European origin.
