Congratulations go to Grant Keddie for his outstanding contribution to the positive vision of the Victoria West Neighbourhood. The Centre would not be here without his efforts. Grant has been involved with the Victoria West Community Association since 1974. He's been president and on many committees over the years. He has written about the social and natural history of Victoria West. By understanding the past and developing the future, Grant makes us realize how special our community is.
On October 26 the residents of Vic West's McCaskill Street celebrated the completion of a very special project, one that has the whole neighbourhood 'clucking'. After months of planning, painting parties, and especially the remarkable talent of resident and artist Lori Garcia-Meredith, a retaining wall sports a delightful mural. Made possible by a City of Victoria Shape Your Future Grant, the mural shows what happens when neighbours get together and picture community.

How well do you know your neighbours? The VWCA is pleased to welcome the Building Resilient Neighbourhoods project to Vic West! Vic West was chosen as a Resilient Neighbourhood pilot site from among many who nominated themselves from throughout the Capital Region (read the press release here). Over 300 passionate, engaged community leaders of all ages and walks of life from throughout the Capital Region have participated in the project to date by coming together to learn more about engaging their neighbours, strengthening their local neighbourhood economy and their capacity to adapt to change.
