world class city

Located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital of British Columbia and a community of choice for many thanks to our temperate climate, natural beauty and diverse economic opportunities.

Victoria is home to about 83,000 people, and is the economic and entertainment centre for the Capital Region’s 350,000 residents. Because we are located in a sub-Mediterranean zone, we enjoy the mildest climate in Canada. Combine this with our ocean views and mountain vistas, and you’ve got the perfect setting for year-round recreational opportunities such as hiking, golfing, cycling, sailing, gardening and kayaking. It’s not surprising that Victoria is one of Canada’s fittest cities, or that it offers easy access to amazing training facilities and coaching expertise. Our overall culture of fitness and activity have made Victoria a hub for elite athletes, including triathletes, rowers and cyclists, to train in.
