The Youth Mobility Agreement between Canada and Germany offers a unique opportunity for young Canadians to complement their post-secondary education but most of all to experience Germany, its culture, language and people. Many young Canadians take the opportunity to live in Germany for a year; here, we are portraying some of them and their experiences as a YMA student in Germany.
Youth Mobility Stories
When Daniel Stubbe started his first job at a pastry shop in Germany and put on his apron for the first time, he thought to himself: “This feels like home!” Fast-forward 23 years, and we meet Daniel in his store at 653 Dupont Street, Toronto, to hear more about his business, his life, and his plans for the future.
