Until further notice, all in-person activities are suspended as per the BC Public Health Order.

However, some activities will continue using Zoom meetings during this period.

We have already adapted and will continue to conduct everything differently (i.e. COVID-compliant) so that we ensure everyone’s safety and compliance with BC Health guidelines as they evolve. 

Once the current restrictions are lifted, we will reassess, and look forward to being able to again offer many of our regular activities. As a member, you will then be able to check the calendar to see what is happening, read what precautions and protocols are in place and, if interested, join in! You will be able to choose from a hike, a walk, a book club, a historical tour or many of our outdoor social gatherings. 

Until then, we will be taking a reprieve from in-person activities, but check the calendar for Zoom get-togethers!


In addition to our more than 20 regular activities, NCGV membership also offers: 

  • Access to our membership roster, offering opportunities for our 150+ members to maintain contact with each other or strike up new friendships.
  • Our regular Buddy Up email newsletter where members can suggest COVID-appropriate opportunities to forge new connections: e.g., a virtual luncheon or neighbourhood coffee group, a physically distanced beach walk, virtual Scrabble. 
  • You can check our Blog Page on the website for snippets and pictures of past events.
Membership fee starting September 1, 2020 is $35. It would be great to have you join us!  

Members, access club information through the Members area of our web site.

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!
