We respectfully acknowledge the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on whose unceded territory we live, and the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ nations whose relationships with these lands and waters shape their political thought, governance and self-determining authority that should inform how we all relate to this place.
AS MUCH AS WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU AND WELCOME YOU TO OUR NEWCOMERS' CLUB, we have reached our membership capacity. As many activities wind down for the summer, we hope that you enjoy the lazy summer days, and consider joining us in the fall.
Quite a few of our NCGV members graduate at the end of August. In September, when our membership numbers are lower, we will revisit accepting new members and allowing those on the waitlist to become new members. To be on this waitlist, contact our Membership Coordinator, Sheila Ronaghan, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The waitlist will be maintained by her on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the date and time a request comes through to her email. (All other membership criteria are also required for the waitlist.)
We really do still want you to join us. Please consider adding your name and we will see you, we hope, in the fall.

We are a club of over 200 women from all parts of Canada and the world. We offer many opportunities for women to meet one another in a friendly atmosphere and to learn more about their new home.
Monthly luncheon meetings with interesting speakers run from September to May. In June, we meet for our annual general meeting, and to bid our 'graduating' members adieu and bonne chance.
In addition, we have over 20 activities and other events, some daytime, some evening, some that welcome members' partners. These range from bridge, book clubs and knitting to hiking, walking and gardening groups.
While some activities cease over the summer months, others 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 interests of our members, so find a group that interests you, or plan to start a new one. We always welcome new ideas for activities and new conveners to help get them going.
You can join an activity group anytime during the year, 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 all outings or just occasionally. Whatever works for you!
