James Bay Community Overview

A vibrant and diverse neighbourhood, James Bay is located immediately south of downtown.

It is surrounded by water on three sides; Victoria Harbour to the north and west, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the south. Beacon Hill Park provides a green border to the east. Its extensive waterfront is alive with activity including an array of industry, government and transportation facilities. 

Tourism plays a significant role in the economy of James Bay. Visitors find many of Victoria's key attractions in the neighbourhood including the Parliament Buildings, Royal BC Museum, Beacon Hill Park, Fisherman's Wharf and many hotels and bed and breakfast establishments. Horse-drawn carriages and waterfront walkways also serve as a draw.

This neighbourhood is an active community with a wide variety of housing styles including heritage homes, and an array of multi-family housing and apartment buildings. The heart of the neighbourhood, the "Five Corners" is filled with local shops and services. James Bay Community School and South Park Elementary also serve the neighbourhood. A thriving population is reflected in the neighbourhood community association and active senior's associations.
