Welcome to Nepal Cultural Society of British Columbia (NCSBC), a community organization of people of Nepali origin and friends of Nepal in British Columbia, Canada. NCSBC was conceived in 1998 with the objectives of (a) promoting Nepali culture and heritage in the Province, and (b) helping community members settle and build their future in BC.
The history of Nepalis in BC is relatively new; they began immigrating in early 1980s. As of 2023, there are now well over 2,000 (unofficial data, to be verified) people of Nepali origin living in BC. From its humble beginning in 1998, NCSBC today has become an intrinsic forum for the Nepali community and also the proud promoter of Nepali culture in BC.
NCSBC runs cultural events to celebrate various Nepali festivals, organizes social interaction events within and outside the community, and participates in local festivities such as Surrey Fusion Festival. NCSBC partners with other organizations, charities, and institutions in the running of UBC-accredited teaching of Nepali language; and in delivering non-academic learning programs in areas of health and safety, law, and general life-skills tailored for Canadian society. Lately, NCSBC has been at the forefront of helping new-arrival Nepalis including immigrants, temporary foreign workers, and students, with their housing needs in lower mainland.
NCSBC strives to make positive difference to the advancement of fellow Nepalis in BC while contributing to the Province’s economy and cultural vitality. From the footsteps of mighty Himalayas to the shores of BC, Nepali community has come a long way and NCSBC is extremely proud of its role in building a better BC for tomorrow.
