Newcomers to Victoria are usually thrilled to be able to move here and you can’t blame them!  With undeniably the best climate in all of Canada, a friendly atmosphere and access to all sorts of recreational pursuits moving to Victoria is at the top of many people’s wish lists.

Starting a new job in the city or settling in to the retirement phase of your life, along with learning your way around will take a little time, but once that phase is finished you may begin looking for ways to interact with your new home in a deeper way, and one of the best ways to establish yourself in a new community is through volunteerism.

Perhaps you’ve already got ties to volunteer organizations with which you were involved in your previous home.  You’ll find that Victoria is home to a plethora of national and international service clubs like:

  • Rotary International;
  • Lions International;
  • Kin Clubs, and
  • Shriners International, to name but a few.

Maybe you have a specific volunteer activity that you have in mind, but don’t know how to get in touch with the right people to offer your services.  Volunteer Victoria is a local volunteer recruitment and referral centre supporting over 280 local non-profit organizations and they can surely use your help in whatever capacity you are willing and capable.

You won’t find a better way to meet wonderful people and get to know your new community than by giving of your time and expertise, so launch yourself into volunteering in Victoria BC.
