Family Moves from Bangladesh to BC for the Opportunities, and the Snow.

June 10, 2016

Dr. Parveen Ali and her husband may hail from a tropical country, but they love fresh snow. It is a good thing they do, because they live in Fort St. John, British Columbia, which gets an average annual snowfall of 183 centimetres.

The couple moved from Bangladesh in 2000, just after Dr. Ali had finished medical school at Sir Salimullah Medical College in the capital city of Dhaka. Her husband, Nakib, landed a job as a banker in Fort St. John. “It was a land of opportunity, so he wanted to come here,” she explained.
