Desirable Community

Located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island on the homelands of the Songhees and Esquimalt People, Victoria is the Capital City of B.C. and one of 13 municipalities in the Capital Regional District. It is home to a dynamic, thriving economy and vibrant arts and culture scene, with an unparalleled natural environment enjoyed by residents and visitors. 
In November 2023, The Globe and Mail ranked the 100 most livable cities in Canada, and Victoria topped the list due to "access to nature, incredible bike infrastructure, a mild sunny climate and a dreamy seaside way of life."
