The City of Victoria is creating a Welcoming City Strategy that will serve as a roadmap to guide Victoria towards becoming a stronger, more inclusive community where all residents, including newcomers, immigrants and refugees, are accepted, respected and feel like they belong.


From now until May 30, visit Have Your Say, our online engagement platform to share your stories and lived experiences: Do you feel a sense of welcome and belonging? What would make you feel more like you belong here? Stories can also be about experiences of inclusion or exclusion, participating in community/civic life, and whether you feel diversity is welcomed.


We’re also looking for ideas on what would make Victoria a more welcoming city for all.


Building what we hear in this first round of engagement, you’ll also have the opportunity to provide feedback on potential ideas for the Welcoming City Strategy in an online survey in June. Your input will help inform the draft Welcoming City Strategy that will be presented to Council for consideration this fall.
