We are inviting you to meet downtown…


It’s not only the charming storefronts, hidden culinary gems, and ocean views that make downtown Victoria an inviting place to meet; it’s people – people like you and people like business owners – that bring energy and life to our streets.

Downtown Victoria is the place our businesses choose to meet every day. It’s where they meet customers, opportunities, and challenges, too. Where businesses meet our community and hopefully soon, where we will meet you.


Despite the pandemic, new businesses are popping up and thriving. Our long-standing business owners are excited to welcome these new faces to the neighbourhood.

We can’t stress this enough: local businesses keep our friends and families employed and our city vibrant, but they will not survive without our support. If we all order from Amazon now, Amazon will be the only business left after the pandemic is over.
