Moving to Victoria BC for Work

by hwilde on November 12, 2011

Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia and a vibrant, growing city teeming with opportunities.  The thriving economy attracts many people who are moving to Victoria BC for work.

One of the big employment sectors in Victoria is the tourism industry.  As a popular destination with people from all over the world, there are plenty of jobs, including many entrance level positions at hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions and service industries related to tourism.

Being the seat of provincial government, Victoria benefits from a myriad of diverse employment opportunities related to government, including provincial government employees, service providers and consultants.

Investment has been made in providing infrastructure that has encouraged a boom in the local tech sector, and this is only expected to continue to grow and develop further and provide more well-paid jobs for people who are living in Victoria.

Of course the popularity of Victoria as a nice place to live and work means a solid construction industry as the city expands and grows, which also leads to a need for more professionals of all sorts, services of every kind, and in short – more jobs.  And that means more people moving to Victoria BC for work!


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.
