What we're about

Do you want to meet like-minded people, discover hidden gems in Vancouver, and feel more at home in this city? Our events are designed to facilitate authentic and long-lasting connections between participants, friendly local businesses, and Vancouver’s beautiful environment.

Events in this meetup are hosted by Relocal, which creates unique experiences to spark connection, joy, and meaningful relationships in Vancouver - for locals, by locals. Visit relocal.ca (https://relocal.ca/) to learn more.

To promote better conversation (no one likes to shout across a dinner table), we have limited seats for each event. Thus PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED via Eventbrite for all events. RSVP on Meetup does not guarantee your seat.

You are invited to use the promo code "meetupfriend" to get $5 off your Eventbrite registration.

COME FOR THE ACTIVITY. STAY FOR THE COMMUNITY.

While we relax through fun activities, we will also chat about our interests, challenges, and dreams. Past Relocal attendees share that these chats are their favourite way to connect with like-minded people and to build a sense of community.

REVIEWS

"Thank you again for organizing such a wonderful event today! The whole afternoon brought a big smile to my face - it was so good to meet you and connect with the others in the group."

"I loved exploring a neighbourhood that I've always been interested in, but hadn't fully made the time to explore more. It was great to learn from neighbourhood locals, hear about the history, and get a taste of favourite restaurants and shops. The pace and casualness of the walk allowed for small conversations with everyone and never felt rushed."
