  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Parks, Recreation and Gathering Spaces
  • Community Well-Being and Safety
  • Economic Health and Community Vitality
  • Truth and Reconciliation
  • Arts, Culture, Music, Sport and Entertainment

Our City's Goal

By 2026, Victoria will be a dynamic, inclusive, more affordable, safer, intentionally transformed city where people can imagine a future for themselves and seven generations to come. We will be known for decisive leadership and innovation in climate action, housing, transportation and meaningful reconciliation with the Ləkʷəŋən- ̓ speaking Songhees and Esquimalt Nations on whose lands the city exists.
