The Greater Victoria Sport Tourism Commission

Sports tourism is currently a catalyst for $117-million CAD in tourist spending in the Greater Victoria area every year. We currently host more than 100 major regional, provincial, national and international sporting events annually - and there are significant opportunities for continued growth.

To this end,  Destination Greater Victoria assumed the responsibilities of SportHost Victoria to create a new model that will champion sports events and grow sports tourism for the benefit of the whole region: The Greater Victoria Sport Tourism Commission.

The Greater Victoria Sport Tourism Commission is a not-for-profit entity dedicated to increasing the quality and quantity of sport-related events and activities hosted in Greater Victoria. The structure of our model is based on best practices learned from leading sport tourism destinations from around world.
