Message from The President
It is a great privilege and honour for me to be the elected president of Bangladesh Canada Association of Edmonton for the year 2017. On behalf of the executive committee, I would like to express my sincere greetings to all the members of the community. The present executive committee has been playing an important role after being handed over the responsibilities. We have been working on generating funds for the community, preparing new website designs, and planning our upcoming events to enrich our community. I wholeheartedly thank those, who have been participating in our AGLC (casino) events almost every year to raise a great fund to build BCAE Bangladesh Center soon for our community.
The members of our community have successfully promoted a rich Bangladeshi culture and heritage in Edmonton since 1979. I would like to thank the ex-executive members and the members of BCAE whose efforts have promoted a very rich Bangladeshi culture and beautifully strengthened the Bangladeshi community in Edmonton. In 2017, BCAE Bangla School is operating smoothly and is teaching Bangla as the previous years. I would like to request all the community members to take this opportunity to send your child/children to learn how to read, write, and talk in Bangla.
Every year BCAE publishes a magazine called BCAE Edmonton Bichitra in printed form which presents BCAE’s image to all levels of the Government. BCAE collects a substantial amount of revenue from sponsors and advertisers. We try our best to distribute all the information with the community members. Announcements of new babies, deaths, tragic accidents, and other important information of community interest are circulated through BCAE’s emails. The executives of BCAE have maintained great integrity and shared responsibilities, which is very much necessary for the smooth running of the organization.
Finally, I appreciate the support, participation, and contribution we receive from all the community members which has made our Bangladeshi community strong.
On behalf of BCAE 2017’s Executive Committee
