KW Asians and Friends is a NEW social and language Meetup group for all Asians (East Asians, South Asians, Middle-Easterners/Muslims etc) AND for anyone interested in meeting each other for local activities, dining out, socializing and making new friends!
We offer a wide-variety of events including: popular Asian multi-cultural events and food festivals, potlucks, Asian movies and Anime, coffee socials, Western and ethnic restaurants, hiking, board and card games, bowling, art and craft shows/gallery, KW Symphony, live theatre, local landmarks and attractions etc. Feel free to make event suggestions and even host them yourself. And, we may on occasion cross-post some food meet ups into KW Movies and Foodies (https://www.meetup.com/KW-Movies-and-Foodies/), so keep in mind that the total attendees coming will be different than shown.
➤ Whether you are new in town, English is your second language or you were born in Canada and have lived here most of your life –– KW Asians and Friends welcomes you! In addition to our regular English social meet ups, we offer group meet ups based on language, and/or ethnic groups such as: Chinese speakers + learners, Muslims, South Asians etc. This is a chance for Asian expats and Asian Canadian members to commune and socialize without judgment. If you are interested in hosting a one-time event, or being an event organizer of such groups, PM Amanda. She currently hosts these events but is looking for members who wants to lead them.
➤ Our members are students, singles and couples... but mostly young adults and some in their 40s. You can bring your kids to our events, if determined appropriate for them. Formerly we were the "KW Chinese-English Language and Cultural Exchange" Meetup group with an ESL focus under the previous organizer. Now, we are primarily a social and all Asian (language) support group.
➤ For membership approval, please upload a photo with your face and a first name (minimum).
Meet ups are in English and open to everyone, unless specified (Girls night only, or ethnic/language-based ones.)
There is no cost to join our group and become a member.
*** NEW GROUP RULE: Three absences of consecutive events that you have RSVPed to, including cancelling on the same day -- will get you banned from the group for a year.
