Heritage Neighbourhoods GIS

Explore VHF's award-winning Heritage Neighbourhoods GIS (Geographic Information System) map. Click "View Larger Map" above for the full screen version with more layers and functions. In this map you can activate additional layers from the Contents, including "Aerial Photo" which will allow you to zoom in to the rooftops.

Move around the map, zoom in and out, and click on the icons to learn more about the 900+ properties on the City of Victoria's Heritage Register. This will open a pop-up box with a thumbnail of each property that links to a more detailed description from the Victoria Heritage Foundation's award-winning series This Old House, Victoria's Heritage Neighbourhoods.

Although not covered in the This Old House series, Downtown Heritage Register properties are included with links to their Statement of Significance on the Canadian Register of Historic Places, where available.

Designated properties (green icons) are protected by City bylaw. Registered properties (blue icons) are recognized for their heritage value, but not formally protected.
