The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, which is the largest of British Columbia's 6,500 islands. According to the 2006 census, about 330,088 people make their home in the Greater Victoria area. The population has increased from 148,000 in 1961 and is expected to approach 400,000 by the year 2020.

Due to the temperate climate, outdoor activities are possible year-round. From cycling, horse riding, mountain climbing, rainforest walks, swimming, whale watching, backroading, diving, golf, bear watching, camping, fishing, kayaking, sailing, boating, hiking, rafting, skiing and windsurfing - there is plenty to do. Many of those moving here add to the high level of artistic, technical and professional skills as well as to the entrepreneurial activity. The region's strategic location as a gateway to the Pacific Rim, its closeness to US markets, and its many sea and air links have made the area a hub for business development and economic investment.
