The Canada Club of Victoria is a not-for-profit social club for Canadians or non-Canadians who have strong ties to Canada. We are based in Melbourne, Australia but do serve the state of Victoria. We try to provide a bit of 'Canadiana' to our members, whether they are permanent residents or here on a short visit.
What We Do We host several major social events such as Thanksgiving Dinner, Canada Day Celebrations, Christmas party, and a mixture of other events - generally on a monthly basis. We try to provide a mix of adult and family-oriented activities. Most events are conducted on a break-even basis.
We provide our members a Canada Club newsletter, which includes notices of upcoming club activities, as well as a membership directory which helps members keep in touch with other members.
We provide club information via email to our members. Members can also be put on a second email list so that they will get any other Canadian information passed our way.
Through our members and connections in the Victoria community, we try to pass on discounts or special offers to our club members.
