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!
NCGV membership also offers:
“I have enjoyed getting to know Victoria better, and all of the wonderful friendships that I have made with Newcomers Club of Greater Victoria over the last 4 years.”
“I will treasure the friends that I have made through this dynamic and fun organization!”
“It’s a terrific way for newcomers to get a feel for the city and to meet up with new people. It’s amazing how many of these connections lead to other opportunities.”
“I have learned a lot about my new home town and made lasting friendships.”
Each year, our 150+ members have access to monthly full membership get-togethers (virtual at the time due to COVID-19) and participate in a wide range of more than 20 activities and interest groups plus more ad-hoc games, walks, swims, social or hobbyists ideas initiated from our regular BuddyUp bailout. All activities are open to members, some welcome partners; some are daytime activities and others run during the evening hours. You can read more about our activities here.

New members receive a personalized nametag and an invitation to a New Members’ Tea/Coffee Morning which provides an orientation to NCGV.
