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!
If you are interested in getting involved, please click on the link for volunteers in the link above or write us a message via Contact Us.




To make Sinterklaas happy, Communication Piet came up with a great idea! Sinterklaas could meet the children through virtual visits. ‘YES!’ Sinterklaas thought, and immediately assigned a special ZOOM Piet to make it all happen. Families can have a personal 10-15 minutes visit with Sint himself, in English or in Dutch. When you ZOOM with Sinterklaas you are in for a special treat. Children can see him, ask questions, get updated on their ‘naughty or nice’ status…and much more. And here is the best part, ZOOM will allow you to record the meeting so that you can share it on social media after.
