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! This is an opportunity for residents to spend a little time with the people in their community. When neighbours know each other, people are more engaged in their neighbourhoods and have a sense of belonging.


On Friday, May 3, City staff will visit several of Victoria's neighbourhoods to ask people on the street what they might do to connect with each other on Neighbour Day. Staff will also answer questions about the City and provide information on neighbourhood programs, such as Emergency Preparation and how to hold a Block Party. As a starter kit, satchels of tea will be handed out for residents to share.
