Our History

The history of Nepalese people who came to Calgary and made their home here is very new. It has been said that the Nepalese students started visiting the 'University of Calgary' for higher academic studies and research in late 1970s. It is also learnt that these students had an unofficial association in place to forge a social and cultural relationships between the students and other Nepalese people living then in Calgary. However, the momentum of such an institution established by the visiting students could not remain active after their departure from Calgary.

In late 1990s, the Nepalese people who had settled permanently in Calgary revived the idea to form a Nepalese association. However, nothing came as concrete to lead the aspirations dreamed by these individuals.

The influx of Nepalese immigrants began to increase inCalgaryfrom 2001 and dramatically reached to 300 people by 2003. With the increase in number of newcomers in Calgary, there was immense need of help, support and guidance for these people to assimilate into a new Canadian society. Realizing this need, by late 2003 many Nepalese individual volunteers came forward and agreed to form a Nepalese Community Society of Calgary (NCSC). Finally, the NCSC was incorporated inAlbertaon 20th February 2004.
