COVID-19 Business Resources

NEW: Businesses can now apply for the COVID-19 Closure Relief Grant, a new program the Province has fast-tracked to support B.C. businesses ordered to temporarily close their doors due to recent public-health measures. Learn more.

Check out our Resource Hub for Local Business to find out what resources the federal and provincial governments are providing to support businesses. 
Anchored by the spectacular Inner Harbour, downtown Victoria is the economic heart of the region and Vancouver Island. It is picturesque, featuring waterfront paths, charming shops and restaurants, stunning heritage buildings and picture-perfect locations.  Proximity to Vancouver and Seattle, and its many sea and air links, make Victoria an obvious centre for business development and economic investment, while still offering the quality of life that a smaller city can provide.
