About Us

The Comox Valley Newcomers’ Club (CVNC) was founded in October 1988. Over  thirty years later, we have a current membership of around 200 women.

The CVNC is non-profit, open to women only and welcomes new members in an atmosphere of friendship. In addition to monthly meetings and regular group activities, we host several special social events during the year.

We encourage women new to the Comox Valley to join us. Your new friends are waiting for you. Why not attend the next General Meeting?

e do not meet during July and August.

We are members of the National Newcomers Association of Canada, formed in 1978 to provide an up-to-date register of member clubs and to facilitate the exchange of ideas between clubs.

Members are invited to be a part of the Comox Valley Newcomers’ Club for up to three years. After 3 years, members are no longer considered newcomers to the Comox Valley; however, many members want to continue with organized activities and enjoy the kinship of other women. For members in good standing, there are two Alumnae Clubs in the Comox Valley that welcome former Newcomers. Visit their websites for more information:
