Welcome to the Scandinavian Community Centre

The home of Scandinavian activities in the Lower Mainland

The Scandinavian Community Centre (SCC) is a meeting place for all Scandinavians, local and visiting, who strive to preserve and promote Nordic culture, community and spirit within the Greater Vancouver area.

The SCC is a non-profit organization that has evolved into a meeting place for the community at large through the energy and effort of dedicated volunteers for more than ten years. It is a place where young and old from all walks of life can visit to experience Scandinavian traditions, culture and make friends for life.

Jointly owned by four charitable organizations, Danish House Society (DHS), Finland House Society (FHS), Norwegian House Society (NHS) and Sweden House Society (SHS), the SCC is the only facility of its kind in the world. It is the only community centre collectively operated by all five Scandinavian nationalities (including Iceland) and has over 3,000 members.

The Centre is also supported by its associate Members: the Icelandic Canadian Club of British Columbia, Scandinavian Cultural Society, Scandinavian Dancers of Vancouver, Scandinavian Seniors and the Scandinavian Business Club of BC .
