About Sweden House Society

How Swede it is!


Sweden House Society (SHS) is an umbrella organisation for all Swedish networks and associations in the Lower Mainland.  The main focus of SHS is to support the maintenance and development of the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby, since many of the member groups activities take place there.  Its’ board coordinates activities and pool resources of its member groups.  SHS also streamlines communications & collaborations within the Swedish community in BC,and provides scholarships to post-secondary students with a Swedish connection.

Through our unwavering commitment to Swedish values, we bring the unique cultural experience to life for every member through every initiative.
