Update

Following a spring/summer of total formal program suspension due to the pandemic, we are happy to state that we are now offering many of our regular activities, just adapted and conducted differently so that we ensure everyone’s safety and compliance with BC Health guidelines.  As a member, you will be able to check the calendar to see what is happening, read about the precautions and protocols that are in place and, if interested, join in!  Choose from a hike, a walk, a book club, a historical tour or many of our outdoor social gatherings.   

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!
