The Garden City
Victoria is a city on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. As the oldest city on the west coast of Canada, and the capital of British Columbia, it has a unique identity as part bustling city and part coastal town. On a peninsula bounded by the scenic Gorge/Selkirk waterway, you’ll find the warm, temperate weather to be a big part of the Victoria lifestyle. With a 380,000 metropolitan population made up of young families, active entrepreneurs, and new retirees, the city is as diverse as it is beautiful.
Whether you’re on water or land, Victoria offers access to the best of nature. Home to some of the best hiking, cycling, and waterfront promenade trails, you’re guaranteed to find a route for you. Book a waterfront wildlife tour to see orcas, humpback whales, and sea lions only a short boat ride away. The Nature Conservancy of Canada calls Victoria their home, and you’ll find the population to be uniquely nature-considerate.
For cyclists, runners, hikers, mariners, and everyone in between, Victoria is an oasis. With unparalleled access to natural scenery, gorgeous trails, and smooth waters, you won’t find any better place for outdoor living. World-class marinas and beautiful waterscapes await a lifestyle filled with kayaking, surfing, sailing, fishing, and boating, all right outside your doorstep.
Victoria is experiencing an explosion in their tech sector. With 380 tech firms in downtown Victoria alone, the growth has fuelled a multi-industry response. You can now find all the comforts and amenities of the big city in just a few streets of Victoria. Tech, tourism, and residential construction have caused the retail vacancy rate to drop by almost half over 2016; this sector renaissance is breathing life into the other industries in the area, making Victoria ripe for investment and industry.
Our artistic Discovery Street, vibrant Chinatown, and beautiful Upper Harbour are all dynamic, shifting neighbourhoods that are breathing new life in to Victoria. From fantastic new restaurants and world-renowned microbreweries to new boutique shopping experiences, the best of Victoria is always just around the corner.
