BURNSIDE VICTORIA, BC

The Burnside Gorge neighbourhood is a diverse area unique in its mix of residential, commercial, and industrial areas. It is located in the northwest corner of the City of Victoria and is crossed by several major roads, including Douglas Street, Burnside Road East, and Gorge Road East. In 2011, it was home to nearly 6,000 residents in 2,800 households. The neighbourhood is also home to over 1,400 private and public sector employers that provide jobs for more than 14,500 people. 

Burnside Gorge neighbourhood was an area of early coastal settlement for First Nations peoples. For thousands of years before the arrival of the Hudson’s Bay Company, the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations – part of the Coast Salish people – used the shores of the Upper Harbour and the Gorge where they lived in large cedar houses, in extended self-governing family groups. Each household group claimed specific areas for living, hunting, fishing, and plant collection. The Gorge, known as Camossung, is a very significant First Nations site.
