Victoria City Hall is open to the public.

City Hall, a unique heritage building in downtown Victoria, is a resource for citizens to access information and services. Members of the public can book spaces in City Hall for meetings and events.

Some types of events suitable for City Hall include community group meetings, non-profit events, workshops, weddings, and arts and culture related events. Commercial activities, registered political parties, or public rallies are not permitted to rent space inside City Hall, and the requesting organization's mandate and activities cannot discriminate against any individual or group as outlined in the BC Human Rights Code.
