Starting from scratch in a new community can be hard work and it can also be lonely. 

If you have recently moved to Greater Victoria, you are probably facing some of the challenges that all of us Victoria Evening Newcomers have faced. 

The good news is that you do not have to do it alone. For the past twenty years, VENC has provided a lifeline for women settling in Greater Victoria. Through events and activities the Club offers opportunities to make new friends, discover new interests and have fun. 

VENC will be a welcoming community for as long as you like. Some of us have just recently joined; some of us have been members for many years. We know our community well and enjoy helping newcomers find their feet. 

Greater Victoria is a wonderful place to live and Victoria Evening Newcomers’ Club can help make your transition to your new life in a new place a little bit easier. 

We hope you will join us!  Click here to join.

Check out our site, come to one of our events and settle in among friends. Learn more...

Below you will find a link to the VENC COVID-19 RESTART Safety Plan created to align with the current British Columbia Provincial Health Officer’s orders and requirements. By following the RESTART Safety Plan, we can safely and joyfully come together to greet old friends, to make new friends and to enjoy this beautiful area we have chosen to make our home!

Thank you!
