Join Us for Victoria 150

On August 2, 1862 the townsite of Fort Victoria was incorporated as the City of Victoria.

The work and effort of Victoria's forefathers and officials laid a clear path for the City of Victoria to thrive, emerging as the Capital City of British Columbia and retaining its prominence as one of the top places to live, work and play in Canada and the world.

In 2012, the City of Victoria celebrates our rich history and creates a window to our equally promising future. It is an opportunity for our community to reflect on 150 years of civic pride and renew our shared commitment to another 150 years as a world-class Capital City.
