Greater Victoria Meeting Directory

The Third Tradition of A.A. states that “The only requirement for A.A. membership is a desire to stop drinking.” Thus ,anyone who thinks that they may have a problem with alcohol is welcome to attend any meeting listed in our Meeting Directory. Most meetings are classified as “Closed” and are intended specifically for A.A. members only or for those who have a drinking problem and “have a desire to stop drinking.” However “Open” meetings are available to anyone interested in the Alcoholics Anonymous’ program of recovery from alcoholism. Non alcoholics may attend open meetings as observers. A few meetings are intended primarily for woman/men and are listed accordingly in the Meeting Directory.

The office publishes the Monthly Meeting Directory on this website.
