The Qualicum Beach Area Newcomers Alumni (QBANA) is an independent, non-profit club formed in 2004 by former members of the Qualicum Beach Area Newcomers Club who wished to continue their activities once their two-year Newcomer’s membership had expired. The purpose of QBANA is to meet and make friends and continue friendships through recreational, social and special interest activities.

Our Activities page includes a wide selection of activities to stay active and meet new people. Be sure to read the President’s Welcome and the Membership page for details on becoming a member.
