Who We Are
Across Canada, there are over 6,500 women (and, now, some gentlemen) who are members of a Newcomer or Newcomer Alumnae Club. The National Newcomers Association of Canada (NNAC) provides these 6500 + members, from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, with a strong and resourceful connection to each other.
We further provide general information and support to all the clubs (numbering over 65), including support in AGM planning and an avenue for Director’s insurance.
NNAC is a dynamic network comprised of volunteers from across Canada (please see our Board of Directors page) who meet via conference call several times a year and donate their time to ensure the Newcomer network in Canada thrives and grows.
According to healthstatus.com, among the top five stressful life events, moving is number three, with ‘how to get established in a new city’ being a major concern/stress.
For more than 45 years, Newcomer clubs across Canada have been giving new members a warm welcome and the opportunity to discover their new city, while providing a ready-made social network and a roster of fun activities. Newcomer clubs provide a supportive friendship network and a voice to all members.
The National Newcomers Association of Canada is proud to reflect the values of over 6,500 Canadians.
