The Society for Intercultural Training, Research (SIETAR BC)

In 1974, a group of professionals working in the intercultural field formed the Society for Intercultural Education, Training, 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.


SIETAR BC aims to increase mutually supportive interaction between individuals locally and globally. 

To do so, SIETAR offers programs, workshops, and events to encourage and provide all individuals an opportunity to:

  • raise their awareness and understanding of how culture affects education, policy-making and business
  • develop their knowledge, values and skills
  • learn and build effective intercultural, racial and ethnic communication and relations
  • connect with SIETAR members and global Intercultural Professionals
