HISTORY

In 1974, a group of professionals working in the intercultural field formed the Society for Intercultural Training, Education and Research (SIETAR). This interdisciplinary network became the largest of its kind, and now includes over 3,000 interculturalists and 15 national and regional groups world-wide.

SIETAR BC was founded in 1992 as a not-for-profit entity incorporated under the laws of British Columbia. As part of the international SIETAR network, SIETAR BC aims to promote cooperative interaction and to build a network to provide mutual support and exchange of information a the local, regional, national and international regions.

While our members are active in a variety of areas, including educational institutions, business, consulting and training, migration and development aid, government, NGOs, and health services, we welcome members from all areas.
