Downtown Community Overview

All great cities have a great downtown, and Victoria is no exception.

Our downtown is a vibrant urban neighbourhood, a walkable shopping area, and a thriving entertainment district.Downtown Victoria hosts not only the world-renowned Inner Harbour, Empress Hotel and Legislature Buildings, but also Canada's oldest Chinatown, and a wonderfully charming Old Town district. 

Our downtown is without a doubt one of the reasons why Victoria is consistently rated as a premier travel destination across the country, and around the globe. It is picturesque, featuring waterfront paths, charming shops and restaurants, stunning heritage buildings and picture-perfect locations.

Downtown Victoria serves as the employment and entertainment hub for the 360,000 residents of Greater Victoria. It is also home to a growing number of residents, and a community in and of itself .
