Not that long ago, Victoria, British Columbia was Canada’s wild western frontier. Located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, northwest of Seattle, Victoria was established as a trading post for the Hudson Bay Company in the 1840s.

A couple of decades later, Victoria became the provincial capital of British Columbia, and the city has never looked back.
