Downtown is open for business

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting our members significantly. Our organization is advocating to municipal, provincial, and federal governments on behalf of local businesses, we are encouraging the public to support local businesses through the crises, and our DVBA Clean Team continues to operate, keeping downtown clean and safe. With 1,500 downtown businesses, and many who live and love in downtown, we are confident that recovery will be achieved by working together as a community. As this beautiful city evolves, so do we, working hard to be the trusted authority on all things downtown.

We've compiled a list of the incredible businesses in Downtown Victoria still servicing our community during COVID-19.
