Surprise - Our Ethnic Heritage

If you asked me which ethnic origin is most prominent in Saskatchewan, I would have said English followed by Ukrainian. Wrong on both accounts! While researching recipes associated with immigrants to Saskatchewan, I was surprised to learn that German is the most common self-identified ethnic heritage. I suppose I should have known that, since I fall into this group!

In which group would the Mennonites be posted? German, English or Canadian?

The census data did not include a listing for Mennonite origins, but I'm guessing that most would self-identify as German. What do you think?
