Victoria's Sustainability Vision

Victoria, as a community and municipal corporation, is an urban sustainability leader inspiring innovation, pride and progress towards greater ecological integrity, livability, economic vitality, and community resiliency confronting the changes facing society and the planet today, and for generations to come.

The City of Victoria’s Sustainability Vision emerged from the Victoria Sustainability Framework [PDF - 159 KB] which was developed in partnership with the community and has set the tone for sustainability in our community.  It has informed the development of the Official Community Plan and the Strategic Plan, and continues to inform City operations, policies and initiatives, and plans. In 2017, this Vision is progressing further with the development of a new Climate Leadership Strategy for Victoria.
