Luxembourgian immigration to Canada has not been as significant as those from other parts of Europe but there is a considerable community from Luxembourg in Canada. Despite this, the North American country is home to one of the largest Luxembourgian communities in the world and the fourth largest in the Americas, only behind the United States, Brazil and Argentina.
There had always been strong relations between the two countries but it was not until the outbreak of the Second World War when both came together even more.
Canada opened its doors to thousands of immigrants, including Luxembourgians. But some of the most notable Luxembourgians who arrived in Canada were the Grand Duke's family who came to Montreal, Quebec as refugees after the German invasion of Luxembourg on May 10, 1940. Since then, Canada and Luxembourg have developed a partnership which encompasses shared values and an ongoing political dialogue on major international issues.
