Saanich Women’s Active Newcomers (SWANS) is a friendly and supportive group for graduates of the Newcomers’ Club of Greater Victoria, NCGV, (formerly the Saanich Newcomers’ Club). Our group organizes and participates in a wide range of activities and interests to members as well as a monthly luncheon with interesting guest speakers or special events.

SWANS is strictly a friendship and social organization and members may not solicit or canvass for any business or charitable purpose.

About Us

We are a friendship group with more than 230 members. We hold monthly meetings at the scenic Royal Colwood Golf Club featuring interesting speakers.

Members may attend monthly luncheons and vote at all annual general meetings. They may also participate in any of the wide range of group activities offered by SWANS. While the club takes a break for June and July, some activity groups continue throughout the summer. There is no limit in the number of years that you may be a member of SWANS. Members that have not joined SWANS in several years always have an option of rejoining.

Upon joining SWANS members will have access to a password protected Members ONLY website which provides detailed information about club events and activities. Members will also have access to membership lists and other important information that is happening in the club.

Newcomers of Greater Victoria are invited to attend a luncheon sometime in the Spring. SWANS membership will email the graduating Newcomers, with details, the month prior to that Luncheon.


Interest Groups and Events

There are many exciting activities offered that reflect the needs and interests of our members. If you don’t find one that interests you start a new one! All Swans Interest Groups are self-managed. Members are encouraged and expected to take an active role in helping to keep their chosen activity running smoothly.

Newcomers of Greater Victoria can join SWANS anytime from August to October and join any activity group offered.

Activity group sign-ups are from August to October. You can however join any interest group offered later in the year by contacting the interest group coordinator. Some interest groups go through the summer months.
