Comprehensive solutions to all your insurance needs in Victoria
Victoria, the capital of B.C., is situated off the Pacific Coast on the rugged southern tip of Vancouver Island. Despite its craggy topography, it is dubbed the City of Gardens thanks to its near-perfect growing climate.
With more than 900 plant varieties, the Butchart Gardens are undoubtedly the city’s crowning jewel. Over 200 acres of natural parkland have afforded Beacon Hill Park an equally coveted place among Victoria’s prime attractions.
Compared to cities like Toronto, Victoria has a more laid-back lifestyle, but it still has a lively city vibe. Afterall, it’s a major tourism destination, bustling tech hub and just a ferry ride away from Vancouver. It’s also following in Vancouver’s footsteps in becoming a pricey city for real estate. So, if a home in Victoria is in the cards for you, be sure to get adequate insurance coverage. Get in touch with our Co-operators Financial Advisors for a no-obligation home insurance quote.
Named after Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, the city has retained much of its colonial architecture, especially its famous landmark: the large Parliament Buildings with a 13-foot bronze statue of Queen Victoria.
The city is also home to one of Canada’s foremost museums, the Royal BC Museum, which showcases 550 million years of natural history and 9,000 years of human history from the province.
Being the capital, Victoria boasts of an excellent public transit system. But within Greater Victoria, private cars, SUVs, and light trucks make up most of the traffic. During rush hour, Hillside Avenue and Shelbourne Street, and Douglas Street and Finlayson Street, are some of the busiest intersections with the most accidents. Protect what matters most and allow our Financial Advisors to offer you the most comprehensive solutions to all your insurance needs, be it ICBC Autoplan car insurance, life insurance or home insurance.
