With its 13 municipalities and the Capital Regional District, Greater Victoria has a complex arrangement of local governance, yet no one municipality has exclusive influence over any one resident. While we shop, work, play, learn, we regularly - and often without thinking - cross municipal boundaries.
This complexity comes at a cost to Greater Victoria businesses in terms of dollars, time and action. For example, inter-municipal conflicts and inefficiencies can affect our ability to compete with other jurisdictions for visitors, labour, higher government funding and more.

Capital Integrated Services and Governance Initiative

"We expect to see this study identify the solutions that best fit the needs of our community now and into the future," said Chamber CEO Catherine Holt. "This is our chance - perhaps our only one - to get the ball rolling."
