The VWCA is a non profit community group that promotes the interests of the residents of the Victoria West neighbourhood. This is accomplished mainly through the many hours of volunteer work by its membership, the community and funding support from the City of Victoria. Events like Vic West Fest, the annual corn roast and monthly meetings to discuss concerns of residents are just a few examples of community building.
The purposes of the Society are to promote, facilitate, support or undertake any activity that will enhance the quality of life in the Victoria West community including, but not limited to, the following:
>>to promote community awareness and pride, and encourage the participation of Victoria West residents in community projects, events, and the community association;
>>to identify community needs and to consult with the appropriate municipal or other bodies to promote the development of services, programs, projects and events to meet the identified community needs;
>>to raise awareness of and provide information on issues that affect the community and its future, and to provide a forum for community members to raise issues of potential concern to the community;
>>to advocate for and facilitate participation by Victoria West residents with developers, government agencies and other bodies concerning neighbourhood plans, land use proposals, developments and public projects within Victoria West; and
>>to plan, administer, operate and maintain the necessary organizational structures, facilities, and staff to achieve the purposes and functions of the association
