  • Connection of the Westshore Communities to Victoria/Saanich
  • Victoria Harbour Transportation Gateway Optimization (including the Belleville Terminal)
  • Airport Runway Extension

“The GVDA has done a fantastic job of recognizing key infrastructure priorities in Greater Victoria and now it is up to other organizations, like the Chamber, and the community to lend their support and help these projects move forward,” said Bruce Carter, Chamber CEO.

“I also encourage local government to support the list in order to reach regional infrastructure goals. The GVDA has paved the way, and now municipalities must work together to initiate change and plan for future growth in Greater Victoria,” said Carter.
