Victoria has the mildest climate in Canada and with greenery in evidence throughout the year there is little wonder that it's called the city of gardens! Victoria boasts a spectacular setting of ocean and mountain vistas and offers numerous economic, cultural and recreational opportunities.
The Inner Harbour is the heart of Victoria and for many boaters is the gateway to the City of Gardens. Bordering the harbour are the ivy-covered Fairmont Empress Hotel, the world-renowned Royal British Columbia Museum and the magnificent BC Parliament Buildings. Government al all levels provide major employment base in the City.
