NEW TO VICTORIA CANADA!

[deleted account] ( 8 moms have responded )

Hello,

I am a new member to this site, and also I will be moving to Victoria, Canada in March. I would like to meet other moms and kids who are around my daughters age. Her name is Alexis and she just turned six months!!! She is very active and I know she would just love a playmate. Or even moms, you want to go for coffee, bake, anything!! I am hoping to meet some of you soon!!

Charlotte, I don't live in Victoria anymore, but I lived there for 3 years and loved it! We live in PG right now and are hoping to go back eventually because we loved it so much. I found some great ways to meet people when I lived there:

1. go to Meetup.com and join in a Mommy's walking group

2. go to the public health unit on their Baby Talk days (you'd have to call to find out the dates and times)

3. They used to have a baby fair there in the autumn (I moved 2 years ago, so I would think they still have it going on) and that was a great place to meet people.

4. Esquimalt rec center, they used to have (and hopefully still do) a Mom and Me aquafit class, the instructor Lara is fabulous, and it was lots of fun and a great way to meet moms and help get the post-baby bod back.

5. The pool in Colwood is wonderful and does baby swim classes

6. Don't forget to contact Welcome Wagon (you can do it online) because they'll give you a ton of information on the town

7. Island Parent Magazine (available for free at the health unit and online) has some great resources for community events, parenting tips, etc.

8. The petting zoo and playground at Beacon Hill Park are fabulous places to meet other moms cause they're usually hopping busy. You can also bring bird seed or bread to feed the ducks and geese and share with the other moms and kids.



Good luck with your move, I'm sure you'll love Victoria, it's a beautiful community!

Well, I looked at her profile, and her current location is Nanaimo, which is in Canada, so I'm guessing Canada :D
