Biographical history

The City of Victoria was incorporated in 1862. It provides local government services to the people of Victoria, such as water, sanitation, and sewerage; street lighting and maintenance; building, electrical, and plumbing permits and inspections; zoning, subdivision, and taxation of land; parks, recreation facilities, and community programs. At different periods, the City has also performed a variety of other functions, such as providing health and welfare services, property assessments, and the local police court.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of a book of reference for lots serviced by the Victoria Water Works Company (established early 1870s), and a census (1891) taken by the City of Victoria as a result of the city's belief that the federal census had placed Victoria's population at too low a figure.
