Town Halls

We hold town hall events each year so that you can share what matters directly with Council.

Thank you to all those who tuned in and participated in our first Virtual Town Hall to learn about City Council's Build Back Victoria outdoor business initiatives for re-opening and recovery

The community was invited to submit a question in advance by email or phone, or post a question live on Facebook and could also watch the live stream/archived webcast.

The City received many questions, both in advance and during the Town Hall. Due to limited time, not every question received was able to be answered. We've grouped responses by theme here

Town Hall @ City Hall
Help Shape Our Seniors
Action Plan 

Canada's senior population is growing and it's important that our community is inclusive and age-friendly so that seniors can lead healthy and active lives, and stay involved.

Thank you to all those who were able to join us in person and online for our Town Hall @ City Hall to help shape our Seniors Action Plan on Tuesday, February 4. Missed it? Watch the archived webcast

The focus of this town hall was aligned with the work of the City's Seniors Task Force, who shared their draft recommendations for a Seniors Action Plan at a series of open houses for public feedback. All input will help inform the draft recommendations for the Seniors Action Plan that will be presented to City Council for consideration this year. 

Town Hall @ VCC on Accessibility

Our second Town Hall was held at the Victoria Conference Centre on July 4, 2019 and focused on the topic of accessibility in the community. Thank you to everyone who was able to participate.

Your stories, suggestions and priorities will help Council and staff better understand the barriers and opportunities to make our community a more inclusive place to live, work, visit and play. The outcomes, topics and ideas generated at this session will contribute to the development of a new city-wide Accessibility Framework. The archived webcast is available here.

Town Hall @ City Hall

Our first Town Hall @ City Hall took place on June 6, 2019. It was an open format where participants set the agenda and Council was there to listen. Speakers were asked to submit presentation material in advance. Watch the archived webcast.
