Together Victoria

    LET'S BUILD A BETTER

    VICTORIA, TOGETHER.


    TOGETHER
    is a grassroots organization of local residents dedicated to creating an affordable, inclusive, and thriving Victoria. We want more people to see themselves and their issues represented in local politics– everyone deserves to be heard.

    WE ENDORSED three exciting, new candidates in the municipal election, who were elected to Victoria City Council on October 20, 2018. Laurel, Sarah, and Sharmarke are committed to a bold, progressive vision for our city. They believe in the power of positive change and they commit to keeping people at the heart of every decision. But they can only do it with your support.

  • Our Plan

    AN AFFORDABLE CITY

    Our City Council must take bold action to address Victoria’s affordability crisis. We will work with residents, businesses, communities, and social providers to identify ways to reduce the cost of living for everyday Victorians. We will tackle the escalating cost of living in Victoria head on by implementing innovative solutions to make housing more affordable, transportation more accessible, and communities more family-friendly.

    AN INCLUSIVE CITY

    Our City Council can do more to ensure all Victorians are heard and that their needs are addressed. We want to improve neighbourhood consultations so it’s easy for residents and community organizations to share their perspectives. We want to bring the community together on pressing issues that are not getting the attention they deserve, such as the growing youth homelessness challenge. When we embrace the diversity of our city, we build a Victoria that works for all of us.

    A THRIVING CITY

    Our City Council must continue to champion sustainability to create a thriving urban core for the people who work, live, and play here. We’re proud of the environmental leadership Victoria has shown so far, and we want to keep that momentum going. From transportation and infrastructure, to local programs and urban green spaces– we will embed sustainability into every decision we make. A thriving economy is also key to our sustainable future; we need to shore up our local economy and strengthen our city’s finances.
