We are theNepal Cultural Society of BC
Welcome to the Nepal Cultural Society of British Columbia (NCSBC), a community organization of people of Nepali origin & friends of Nepal in BC, Canada.
Welcome to the Nepal Cultural Society of British Columbia (NCSBC), a community organization of people of Nepali origin & friends of Nepal in BC, Canada. NCSBC was established in 1998 with the primary purpose of promoting unique Nepali culture and historical identity while helping fellow community members build a prosperous and meaningful future.
The history of Nepalese in BC is relatively new; they began immigrating here in the early 1980s. Until the early 2000s, there were a handful of Nepalese here but we’ve grown to well over 2000 today.
From its humble beginning in 1998, NCSBC today has become a common forum for sharing ideas and information among us. It has done a truly remarkable job in helping our fellow community members integrate with the Canadian society while cultivating a sense of Nepaliness among them and their children. The society runs interaction forums and summer language classes and at the same time celebrates Dashain, Tihar, New Years, and other multicultural events, which are so special to our community.
As a community, we believe we have made a positive difference to the advancement of fellow Nepalis in BC while contributing to its economy and cultural vitality. From the footsteps of mighty Himalayas to the mountains of BC, we have come a long way and we are extremely proud of what we have accomplished thus far as we strive for a better future tomorrow.
Bringing the Community Together
We want to share and maintain Nepalese culture in our community, educate the youth, and build strong relations within our members.
From Our President

Nepalese community acknowledge the fact that since its establishment, NCSBC has been serving our community with best of its capacity.
