As the capital of British Colombia, Victoria has a number of thriving industries, including banking, government administration, education, pharmaceuticals, and food products. The two major industries are tourism and technology, with a number of high-tech firms providing employment in engineering, architecture, and telecommunications. A number of theaters and opera houses in Victoria will keep culture-loving expats happy, along with a variety of music and arts festivals through the year.
