The Victoria Women’s Newcomers Club is a volunteer organization where women, new to the city, build friendships and knowledge of the community through social, cultural and outdoor activities. 


 Our logo is new for 2017.   The green represents  the many trees and foliage surrounding us and the blue signifies the ocean.  The new tagline, New City, New Friends, New Opportunities, tells others and reminds us why Newcomers exists. 

Are you a newcomer to Victoria looking for community information, new friends, things to do?

Look no further; the Victoria Women's Newcomers Club was founded over 20 years ago to help women just like you find friends and enjoyment in participating in an exciting and dynamic group of fellow newcomers to Victoria.

The Victoria Women's Newcomers Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month from September to June.

We organize small groups such as book discussions, walking, bridge and more! Participation in any of our group activities is open to all members. New members and guests are always welcome!
