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

Neighbour Day: Sunday, May 5

Join us on Sunday, May 5 for Neighbour Day in Victoria!  It’s a great opportunity for residents to get out and spend a little time with their neighbours. When neighbours know each other, people are more engaged in their neighbourhoods and have a shared sense of belonging. 


We are going to start a little early - on Friday, May 3. City staff will be visiting several of Victoria's neighbourhoods to promote Neighbour Day. You will see us at sidewalk stands in each neighbourhood, asking people on the street what they might do to connect with their neighbours on Neighbour Day. City staff  will also answer questions people may have about the City and provide information on neighbourhood programs like Emergency Preparation and how to hold a Block Party.  


Friday, May 3 - City teams throughout Victoria: 


10–11:30 a.m.                     12–1:30 p.m.                            2–3:30 p.m.
