About Us

We are a club of almost 200 women from all parts of Canada and the world offering many opportunities for women to meet one another in a friendly atmosphere and to find out more about their new home. Monthly meetings with lively speakers run from September to June.  We have daytime and evening events, some of which welcome members' partners. 

While the club takes a break during the summer, some  events and activity groups continue throughout the year.

Activities and Events

There are so many exciting things to do with your Newcomers’ Club of Greater Victoria friends!  Our activity groups reflect the needs and interests of our members, so find a group that interests you or start a new one!  We always welcome new ideas for activities and new conveners to help get them going. You can sign up anytime during the year to join an activity group as long as spaces are available!

Once you have joined an activity group, it is up to you to decide whether you would like to participate in something every month or just occasionally!

Our Purpose

We offer women of all ages who are newcomers to the Greater Victoria area an opportunity to become acquainted with others through activities of mutual interest in an atmosphere of friendliness and goodwill, and to supply useful information about the local community to club members.
