Missing Middle Housing is the gap between apartments and single-family homes


Whether starting out, growing a family, or down-sizing, everyone deserves a good home.

In Victoria, we need more housing options that address the diverse needs of our community. For instance, we know Victoria has been losing people in their 30s, likely as a result of the lack of housing options that fit their incomes and ability to grow as a family.

That’s why one of our housing initiatives – Missing Middle Housing – is focused on creating more townhouses and houseplexes – to help diversify housing choices in between

This engagement process will help the City of Victoria better understand our community’s interests and needs related to this type of housing.

The feedback collected will inform the Missing Middle Housing initiative and future projects considering housing options in Victoria.

Your input will help us create a more inclusive community with more housing choice for people at all stages of life. We appreciate your participation in the process.

    Besides the survey what other early engagement opportunities will be made available?

    Rowena Locklin asked 2 months ago

    Thank you for your question.


    Following the early engagement, staff will review feedback as well as early technical analysis and prepare an engagement summary and a report to Council for early 2021. Following Council direction, we will undertake broad community engagement focused on hearing community feedback on scenarios and key considerations for policy and zoning changes developed based on early engagement input and technical analysis. Community feedback gathered at this stage will inform potential modifications to the draft recommendations.
