This meet up was started by Zara, an outgoing and adventurous Australian, who moved to Vancouver with her Canadian partner in 2013. She loved this city, but really missed all her girlfriends back home. So she initiated this group for women in a similar situations, you may have moved from another country, another province or maybe you just want to meet and make more girlfriends.
She believed that girlfriends give support, advice, inspiration, company, great conversation, offer kind words and so much more. They are an absolute need in any girls life.
In 2014, Zara stepped down as organizer after hosting some incredible events and socials with unbelievable turnouts. One of the most memorable was having over 75 members show up to the first ever event hosted at the Keg in Yaletown. She followed up by hosting a number of other fun, relaxing and casual events that were enjoyed by many. Zara is now a mom to a beautiful little girl and continues to be a member of the group.
Jacqui and Irene have since taken over the group and are planning to host social events monthly. If you ever have any thoughts or suggestions for meet ups please send a message or feel free to set up your own meet up date! Picnics, wine nights, a movie, coffee, dancing, anything!
Everyone has joined this meet up group for the a similar reason, so get involved, make connections and new friends!
Now it's Monica and I'm changing it to New Friends in Vancouver
