About the NBSCA



The New Brunswick Scottish-Cultural Association, Inc. (NBSCA) was founded in 1980 in response to the disparate nature of the Scottish community in the Province of New Brunswick. Today, the NBSCA encompasses and represents individuals of Scottish descent and Scottish cultural groups across the province. Indeed, the NBSCA is the advocate of approximately 140,000 New Brunswickers who claim Scottish ancestry.

The Association has two broad aims: Cultural Preservation and Education. At the same time, because the NBSCA is a non-profit organization, a third challenge exists: maintaining a Governing Structure that is minimalist and frugal, yet effective.

The activities of the Association are very diverse. From Tartan Day Celebrations to the Celtic Performers database, from the annual Round Table Discussions to sponsoring Gaelic language classes, the NBSCA is a diverse organization with diverse activities. This website aims to show the many responsibilities of the NBSCA.
