About VOCS

VOCS is an unincorporated association with a Constitution, Board of Directors, and Officers. Its 360+ members are alumni of Oxford University and Cambridge University and other persons with academic connections with the two ancient Universities who reside in Greater Vancouver, or living in or near British Columbia. We have some overlap and warm relations with the Vancouver Island Oxford and Cambridge Society (VIOCS), the Oxford-Cambridge Society of Portland, Oregon, and the Seattle Oxford and Cambridge Society (SOCS).

If you are an alumnus or alumna living in or around Vancouver you are entitled to join the society.  To join, please access the Member Registration page on this site.


VOCS has existed since at least 1929 when our first Boat Race Dinner was held, and is one of the oldest Oxford and Cambridge societies in North America. That said, fellowship among Oxbridge alumni in B.C. goes back well before the formal creation of the Vancouver Oxford and Cambridge Society.
