The Pep is a new volunteer newsletter, bought to you by the Victoria West Community Association, to help Victoria West volunteers and those who are planning Victoria West community events and projects keep in touch.
The Pep is organized into two major categories:
Short Term Opportunities: Like the Vic West Fest or Potlucks: for those who like to help but are short on time.
Longer Term Opportunities: Like the Food Security Collective or emergency preparedness: for those who would like to be a part of an on going project to help build awareness and strategies in the event of an earthquake or learn how to grow a garden.
Sign up here today!

Victoria West is one of 12 Canadian "best Old House neighbourhoods" featured in the online version of This Old House Magazine. As might be expected with a New York reporter working over the phone, they got it wrong about residents of VW opposing condo developments on our waterfront. In fact we've had a particularly good working relationship with the developers of Railyards, Dockside Green and Bayview/Roundhouse over the past decade.
Grants are available for neighbourhood development, greenway development, workshops, festivals, development of our economy and special projects. If you live in Vic West and have an idea for a project, please consider the Victoria West Community Association as a community partner. http://www.victoria.ca/EN/main/community/city-grants.html
