Understand

Talk

English is the language that is primarily spoken in the southern portion of Vancouver Island. However, due to the large First Nations population, you may occasionally see a sign or billboard in one of the many Aboriginal languages. Many small minorities also live there, including several Asian populations. Victoria has a large Chinatown. Although it is not that common to hear on the streets, French is an official language of Canada, and therefore most signs have both languages.
