About Victoria, B.C.

Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia, located on the west coast on the southern-most tip of Vancouver Island. The city is most known for its flowers, hence its nickname The Garden City and has an annual flower count dating back to the 1970s.

Life in Victoria

Overlooking the Inner Harbour, Parliament Buildings are scattered throughout downtown Victoria. The city is always bustling with tourist activity, but still retains a laid-back pace of life in comparison to bigger cities like Vancouver. There’s an abundance of neighbourhoods to choose from, ranging from quiet waterfront victorian houses and luxury condos, to picturesque streets lined with art galleries, to the more eclectic neighbourhoods in the downtown core.

After falling sharply at the height of the pandemic in early 2020, housing activity in Victoria bounced back quickly, rising 38.7% in July compared to a year earlier. Home prices also showed strength, with the MLS Home Price Index showing a 5.7% year-over-year increase to $861,100 for single-family homes.
