About Us

As a provincially incorporated non-profit society, the Greater Victoria Police Foundation’s (GVPF) vision is that the communities of Victoria, Esquimalt, Oak Bay, Saanich and Central Saanich as well as regional Indigenous communities experience positive change driven by youth, through empowering citizenship and leadership programs. The GVPF provides funding for programs outside core regional police budgets, and it has begun collaborating closely with all police agencies serving these communities, local businesses, regional non-profit service providers and Indigenous partners to unite collective assets, expertise and resources to foster the development of youth as influential members of society.
