Nepal Cultural Society of British Columbia

Community Organizations

The Nepal Cultural Society of British Columbia (NCSBC) was founded in 1988 with the goal of promoting Nepali culture, fostering a sense of community among Nepali people in British Columbia, and providing support for new immigrants from Nepal. They organize interactive forums and summer language classes, as well as hosting celebrations for Dashain, Tihar, New Years, and other multicultural events.

The NCSBC is an important Himalaya Program partner, and has been instrumental in building this program from the beginning. The NCSBC was actively involved in the design of the Language Partner Program, and assisted with the recruitment of teachers for the Nepali language classes. Their engagement has enhanced the success of Himalaya Program events, and the community has served as an important local resource in all stages of the Program’s development. Community partnerships are a cornerstone of the Himalaya Program’s model, so we are thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with the NCSBC.
