WestShore Chamber of Commerce

Business and Visitor Information Services for the West Shore Communities.

Victoria’s West Shore is situated on the southern tip of Vancouver Island only 15 minutes by car to the west of downtown Victoria.

The West Shore consists of five communities: Langford, Colwood, the Highlands, Metchosin and View Royal; each with a unique and distinct character. Langford is filled with big box stores, specialty shopping & restaurants and is one of the fastest growing communities in the Greater Victoria area. It is home to the West Shore Chamber building and Visitor Info Centre housed in Veterans’ Park. Colwood is a residential and commercial area with significant and beautiful heritage landmarks. The Highlands is a region of quiet rural living surrounded by exceptional parklands. Metchosin has farms, scenic coastlines and recreational areas for hiking and bird watching. View Royal is primarily residential, close to downtown Victoria with amazing waterfront views.

The West Shore area is a great location for outdoor adventures with hiking trails, sandy beaches, old growth forest, whale and wildlife watching, biking, canoeing and kayaking. This is a wonderful place to live or visit.
