Welcome to Niagara-On-The-Lake      Newcomers Club



We've been providing service to women who are new to Niagara-on-the-Lake since 1991. Our club has grown from the original small group to almost 400 members.  The club regularly offers the opportunity to visit local attractions like the Shaw Festival, local Art galleries and historic buildings and venues. Additionally, there are opportunities to join dining clubs, outdoor activities, interest and hobby groups and meet local service clubs.  For more information about the interesting history and development of our club, please follow this link. 


Please take a moment to scroll through the photos on this site to see our many happy members participating in club activities!



The NOTL Newcomers Club is for women who live in the Ontario municipality of Niagara-on-the-Lake, which includes Old Town, Glendale, Queenston, St. David's and Virgil. 

Our goal is to welcome women who are new to the town, and to help them meet one another and discover everything our unique town has to offer residents.

Membership is open to women who have recently moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) and also to women residents who have undergone a major change in their lives, such as retirement, and want to become more involved in local life.

Find out more about joining NOTL Newcomers, and then check out our tips on living here on our LOCAL LINKS page.  We kindly request that Members help us provide a Scent Free environment at club activities. 

NOTL Newcomers is a member of the National Newcomers Association of Canada. If you'd like to learn more about this national organization, please follow this link. To access their most recent Newsletter, please follow this link.


Monthly programs held once a month from September to June on the third Wednesday of the month. Most programs are a visit to a local place of interest, others take the form of meetings at the NOTL Community Centre, and twice a year we all enjoy a celebration lunch together at a local hotel or restaurant.

Interest groups are at the heart of the Club and there are groups for active and not-so-active leisure pursuits, including biking, gardening, Mah-Jonng, dining in and dining out, book clubs, discussion groups...there are more than thirty interest groups available, but if your interest isn't represented you're welcome to suggest a new group.

Coffee & Conversations is a monthly opportunity to meet informally at a friendly local cafe at the NOTL Community Centre. Every last Friday of the month, (except June, July and August), members meet to catch up on news, chat, sign up for programs and find out what's going on. The Mori Roomwill host Newcomer members between 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. Please join us!

Special Programs take place during the year and offer something a little out of the ordinary. It may be a visit to a special interest site in the area, or a chance to learn the basics of an art or craft. Usually consisting of ten to twenty members, these programs are hot tickets and are snapped up quickly.
