Dutch Network Greater Vancouver

Welkom / Welcome to the website of the Dutch Network!

We are a non-profit Dutch-Canadian Cultural Society based in Greater Vancouver, British Columbia.
We are a lively organization with weekly events for young and old. We are always looking for new activities and initiatives.

Events are organized for Dutch-Canadians so that they can get together to celebrate, enhance and preserve the Dutch heritage, Dutch language and Dutch cultural traditions in BC, such as: monthly pub nights and coffee clubs, annual events which include King’s Day, Sinterklaas and the Easter Egg Hunt. Find an overview of our events below. We look forward to seeing you at our events!
