Moving to Victoria BC for Education

by hwilde on December 2, 2011

People who live in rural areas and small communities around BC might consider moving to Victoria BC for education.  Whether you are looking for a quality education for your children at the k-12 level or post-secondary education for any member of your family, Victoria has much to offer.

School districts in Victoria also welcome international students who want to take advantage of our progressive system and along with that, fine-tune their English language skills.  Some of these students participate in home-stay programs where they are billeted with local families.

Many people who move to Victoria for education do so in order to access the type of post secondary education that they can’t get in their hometown.  Victoria can provide almost any manner of training and education at various institutes including:

  • Career Colleges;
  • Trade Schools;
  • Technical Schools, and
  • Universities.

Every year sees an influx of new high school graduates moving to Victoria to attend the University of Victoria, Camosun College or any one of a number of trade and technical schools to obtain the skills and knowledge needed for their chosen careers. And after they’ve been educated, some of these people find employment in the Greater Victoria area and settle here, because they like living in Victoria!


Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
