What we're about
Welcome to VanCity Newcomers (20's~30's) Group !!
For anyone between the age of 20-30's has moved to the GVA recently and wants to branch out and make new friends/connections/memories and learn about living in BC.
VanCity Newcomers is a Social Networking Group for newcomers who want to meet other Locals and Expats in a relaxed and casual environment. Our meetups are held once or twice every month.
VanCity is a wonderful place but it is much nicer with friends who would like to make interesting connections with newcomers!
While we are called the Expats Club, everyone is welcome to join. There is nothing better than expatriates and locals interacting and socialising together.
It allows for interesting conversations and enriching experiences. We will help you shrink the time it takes to create a social network and that too with others who are also new here.

Here you can see everyone from different cultures and races meeting and having a great time and this is what we tend to achieve everytime we host!
Here is how we will do things differently
Ever since Covid has occurred the world has changed ways in how we function and operate.
Meeting people of various cultures has become difficult with various restrictions and with online events people rarely have the opportunity of meeting face to face and this results in not getting the right opportunity to meet in person.
We will always have hosts at all our events. You will always be greeted by someone
at all our events and introduced to others. (Warm & welcoming hosts to help you
Click on the link to understand WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO SOCIALISE AT OUR MEETUPS!
We will minimise no shows by requiring attendees to pay a deposit in advance. No
shows are misleading and not fun for organisers nor for members.
We will not disguise organisation costs in opaque ticket prices, commissions from
bars or inflated set menu prices.
We will instead ask for a small charge of a few pounds to help us manage the group and its activities. (Very Transparent)
We will strive to attract a high quality membership who prefer higher quality
venues and events. We will not be driven by happy hours, free food etc...(as all
of these are eventually balanced out by much higher prices later)
We will constantly request members to help us host events and take a lead on
activities so that we have energy and variety.

I very much hope that you will join us and create a vibrant social community
which is close knit and high quality.
