About the PCA Calgary
Pakistan Canada Association (PCA) Calgary, formed in 1967 and officially registered in 1975, is a non-profit organization representing Canadians of Pakistani origin residing in Calgary and its surrounding areas.
Canadians of Pakistani heritage started to migrate and settle in Calgary in the early sixties. These early arrivals were young, enthusiastic and venture loving Pakistanis who came to Calgary in search of higher education and/or employment in the technical sector of then booming oil and gas industry.
The PCA Calgary was formed with the efforts of these early immigrants in 1967. However, it was officially registered on November 17, 1975. The first president of PCA Calgary in 1967 was Mr. Syed M Hasan. Of Course, there were many others who contributed to establish PCA Calgary.
Today, PCA is counted among one of the most active and vibrant cultural organizations in Calgary. PCA Calgary has it own Cultural Centre and has a community population estimated to be over fifteen thousands Pakistani’s.
On behalf of PCA Calgary, I am very pleased to welcome you to the PCA Calgary Website.
PCA has vested a significant amount of time and effort to launch this website. We have tried to make it as informational and interactive as possible.
This website, in addition to the history and background of PCA Calgary, offers info on our upcoming and past events as wells as consular services updates and other relevant community matters. In addition, there are important links to other organizations and government sites, all for your ease and convenience.
We look forward to your comments and suggestions for further improvements.
