Update: Join us for our Multicultural Family Swim Series

Family swim Courtenay

The Immigrant Welcome Centre invites newcomer families to come to our free Multicultural Family Swim Series that will take place the third Friday of the month.

The Comox Valley Regional District has generously offered the use of the pool for Friday evenings in 2022-2023 for new families to the Valley to swim and make social connections.

We are also excited to announce that Thrifty Foods is sponsoring snacks to be served when families connect before or after their swim.

The swim series is FREE but space is limited – registration is required!

All swims are from 6:30 to 8:15 p.m. with socializing and snacks available until 8:45 p.m.
