Newsletter, February 28, 2023

The news is rather good at the NCGM because for 3 months now, all our announced activities have finally taken place. We now have 135 members and growing steadily. We have a huge backlog to make up for in the Montreal region compared to Ottawa, Calgary or Toronto. The NCGM is there to make up for this delay by now having a real independent club whose main mission is to organize naturist activities.

The Federation of Canadian Naturists (FCN) has understood this for a long time and encourages us in our efforts. We have just completed a comprehensive 8-page survey with the FCN. This survey dealt only with naturist clubs without land in all of Canada where there are several. On the part of the NCGM, we have expressed our desire to now have services in French directly from the FCN website.

The multiplication of the number of independent naturist organizations (clubs, forums, social media, etc.) is undoubtedly the most effective way to ensure the progress of the naturist movement in Quebec.

Our latest activity Spa Laurentians

Our last Spa Laurentians activity on February 11, 2023 was a great success with 43 participants (24 men and 19 women). We received many new participants. A spa activity is a less steep walk to try naturism for the first time. Our next date will be Friday evening March 31, 2023. However, we will need enough registrations two weeks in advance to confirm this event. Please register as soon as possible.

Next activity Pool Montérégie

Natural swimming during the cold season is still the main activity of our club. The main place to organize this swim is the famous Sainte-Julie swimming pool. We encourage you to participate in this activity which has the potential to bring together a greater diversity of participants. This activity is preceded by an optional dinner at the Score restaurant in Sainte-Julie.

For families, there will be many aquatic accessories that will make this activity very entertaining: flippers, floats, mattresses, small slide, etc. For athletes, there will be a real volleyball net installed in the shallow part of the pool and two swimming lanes available throughout the swimming period. There will be an aqua fitness session in the second hour in the shallow area. We are waiting for you in large numbers on March 11, 2023.


For each activity, the NCGM offers a carpooling service for members who want it. We continue to promote this service tirelessly. It is not widely used so far. However, the younger generation is beginning to use it. This choice is offered directly when you register for each of our activities. We coordinate transportation from your addresses to maximize service efficiency. Feel free to use this service.


As of February 28, 2023, the number of NCGM members has reached 135 people (94 registrations) and has doubled in the last 6 months. We currently have a male to female ratio of 1.68.
