About Oak Bay
Oak Bay is a distinct municipality located to the east of Victoria although the boundaries of the city have thoroughly merged with the neighbourhoods of Victoria. This area has some wonderful, natural features such as the miles of shoreline and a number of parks and recreational venues. The leafy, tree-lined streets are just right for Sunday drives or long evening walks. Oak Bay received its name from the Garry oak trees, which are found throughout the region.
Oak Bay is the home of the University of Victoria, a public school and research institution. The university is ranked in the top 1% of schools in Canada and is sited on 400 acres with more than 21,000 students in attendance. Oak Bay is also the location of two marinas, the Oak Bay Marina and the Royal Victoria Yacht Club, one of the oldest yacht clubs in Canada.

There are a number of examples from pre-eminent architects such as Francis Rattenbury and Samuel McLure mixed with classic and newer examples of the West Coast style.
