WHO is it for?
Anyone is welcome to the group, specifically it is to support
Newcomers who are
- Professionals &/or their families who relocated from other countries, cities or provinces in Canada.

Relocation is a tough process and we relate and understand exactly what you are going through and we are here to support!
We help you connect with other newcomers and local communities through social events and organized activities!
The Purpose is to
- Connect & Make friends
- Share stories
- Get to know local hidden eating out spots where locals hang out – because it’s the best way to understand local culture!
- Be open to learn the truth about Victoria and adapt to succeed
- Have experience to explore this unique culture and fall in love with it!
Also how to successfully network in Victoria and establish meaningful connections.

Suggested One-time Contribution - Lifetime Membership $15 (in case you anticipate visiting min of 3 events a year).
What is offered on yearly basis?
Over 50 meetups organized per year to help you connect with other newcomers, learn about local culture and history, spend time outdoors and much more.
MONTHLY updates with a list of other networking/interest groups meetups or other community events (over 200 a year) - whose organizers I know personally and believe it will be beneficial for employment or business networking purposes, or for fun and social enrichment.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
The contributions will help me cover the annual fee that is charged by Meetup.com, also marketing - I create group business cards to advertise on regular basis and would like to create membership cards to give to anyone who signs up so they can be used to get discounts at local businesses/services.
THANK YOU for your support!
