Bangladesh Heritage

About Us

Who We Are...

Canada’s multicultural society is a great example of how people with different ethnic identity, cultural background, believe, and language foster friendship and understanding while building a diverse and vibrant community.

The Bangladesh Heritage and Ethnic Society of Alberta (BHESA) is a socio-cultural, non-political, non-sectarian, and non-profit organization that serves the local community of Bangladeshi-Canadians comprising of immigrants and descendants, and those people who are interested in the culture, arts, and people of Bangladesh.

Operating in Edmonton, Alberta, and vicinity area BHESA preserves, promotes and celebrates Bangladesh culture, heritage and history with a variety of programs, projects, and services.

Per example BHESA is providing social and cultural interaction throughout the year by initiating events like Ekushey (International Mother Language Day), Shadhinota Dibosh (Independence Day), Pohela Boishakh (Bengali New Year), Iftar Party (Food Festival), Eid Reunion (Festival), Durga Puja Reunion (Festival), Bijoy Dibosh (Victory Day), Children Festival, and the celebration of important Canadian and international commemoration days. Such celebrations allow us to introduce the Bangladesh culture and heritage to a broader community and our children.

BHESA’s magazine “Edmonton Bichitra”, the magazine of the Bengali community, is providing an additional voice for our people. Other projects are dedicated to the promotion and preservation of our cultural heritage, be it our Bangla language, arts, music, film, dance, buildings, our customs, history, or other important heritage.

If you live in the Edmonton area and are from Bangladesh, or have an interest in the Bangladeshi culture, our organization is for you! Please feel free to reach out to us.
