Neighbourhoods

Victoria is a city of neighbourhoods, each with distinctive character and charm.

Our neighbourhoods are well-connected hubs of activity, designed for active living. With a mix of housing and within close distance to schools, parks, shopping and recreational opportunities, Victoria is a unique and desirable place to live.

My Great Neighbourhood Ideas Fair:  Wednesday April 19, 3:30 – 7:30 p.m.  at City Hall 

Join the City and community for the launch of the 2017 My Great Neighbourhood Grant program! Come and learn about the program, discover what it takes to do a project on public property, watch presentations that will inspire and educate, be equipped with great ideas, connect with staff and other funding agencies, and be inspired to do something great in your neighbourhood. Please join us for presentations, music, food, inspiring ideas, and networking.  Click here for more information on the event and ideas for grants for neighbourhoods. This event is open to all residents and organizations based in the City of Victoria. Hope to see you there!

Great Neighbourhoods Initiative

Created to support great neighbourhoods, the City's Neighbourhoods Team aims to empower residents to shape their community. The team is here to make it easier to navigate City Hall and to help advance community projects. Whether you are looking to apply for grants, seeking technical advice, or wanting to bring a project in your community come to life, you can contact your neighbourhood liaison and they can help connect you with the information you are looking for.
