The Council works to enhance the social, economic and environmental sustainability of the Region. We help deliver the Resilient Neighbourhoods Program to support action by residents on the social, economic and environmental sustainability of their local communities.  We also work on social sustainability with community service organizations, and advance proactive regional planning to meet the needs of families and children, particularly those that are most vulnerable.  We work with regional and municipal governments to improve sustainability planning that integrates social, economic and environmental considerations.Our research and collaborations actively promote best practices in local government policy; track trends across the continuum of housing needs to develop solutions; and improve access to financing, research and technical assistance for affordable housing development.

We are an active member of the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness and provide housing research services to the Capital Regional District.
