Canada India Education Society (CIES) supports education, community development, health care and job creation in India. We promote civil society partnerships between Canada and India with a particular focus on relationships between groups in British Columbia and Punjab.
Founded in Vancouver in 1991 by Mr. Budh Singh Dhahan, along with family and friends, CIES has been successful in building relationships through our long-term projects. We have maintained a dedicated network of supporters and volunteers who have assisted our fundraising efforts over the years.
Our achievements include contributing to health, education, and village development programs in Punjab by working closely with local partners. CIES also initiated and facilitated a dynamic partnership between the University of British Columbia School of Nursing in Vancouver and Guru Nanak College of Nursing in Dhahan-Kaleran, Punjab.
