Community Profile

On December 5, 1988 – with a population of less than 5,000 – the Town of View Royal was incorporated and became its own distinct municipality comprising approximately 2,500 hectares of land. Since that time, the community has experienced significant growth and development while still maintaining much of its small town character. As a gateway between Victoria's urban core and the growing West Shore municipalities, View Royal today is a thriving community of approximately 10,400 residents located in Vancouver Island's Capital Regional District (CRD).
