10-Year Official Community Plan Update

We are updating the Official Community Plan (OCP) for Victoria to meet the needs of our growing population and address the housing and climate crises. The plan we make now will help Victoria grow and change to meet future challenges.

Let's Talk About Victoria's Future:
Until September 2024, we will be in your community and online talking with you about housing, community and climate and how you see your city changing and growing into the future. You can have your say by taking the OCP survey, attending an open house, visiting us at a pop-up event or attending an online information session.

Check this page for updates on new engagement opportunities and sign-up for the OCP Newsletter to keep up to date on OCP engagement activities. You can also try out City Spark, the Official Community Plan Matchmaker, to swipe through and match with OCP topic areas that have your heart before taking the survey.



Places & Spaces - Place-based Planning
As part of the OCP update, the City will consider key directions from current neighbourhood plans to ensure each area of Victoria can grow and maintain it’s special charm while still aligning with OCP framework. James Bay, Oaklands and areas in Jubilee, Fort Street and Oak Bay Avenue are without recent neighbourhood plans. Learn how you can help shape how each of these areas will grow and change into the future at engage.victoria.ca/places-spaces.

Not Starting From Scratch
We have a solid understanding of what Victoria values and needs from years of public feedback, technical analysis, current City policy and through the creation of plans like GoVictoria, the Climate Leadership Plan, Parks and Open Spaces Masterplan and Victoria 3.0. Now it's time to talk about how to bring those values to life as our city grows and changes. Victoria is already a leader in housing policy and regulations. The OCP update process will continue to align local action with federal and provincial programs that seek to address the housing and climate crises.


The Official Community Plan: It's. A. Big. Deal.
The Official Community Plan (OCP) shapes how we live, work and play in Victoria. It's the long-term plan that determines how our community will grow and change. Decisions on where housing, businesses and parks should go, how we move around the city and ways Victoria can respond to the climate crisis are all determined by the OCP. If the City was a train, the OCP would be its conductor leading the way.
