Have you seen the Victoria County Transit buses on the road? Yes! Victoria County now has a transit service. But its not like a traditional transit service where you wait at a bus stop and bus goes by at a certain time – no, it is so much better!
Victoria County Transit is a dial-a-ride service. They will pick you at your door and deliver you back there. All you need to do is book the ride 24 hours in advance by calling1-833-625-1475 or
The cost is $5 (one-way) ANYWHERE in Victoria County. Anywhere OUTSIDE the county there is an additional mileage charge (.55 cents per kilometer that is shared among the riders).

The Municipality recently passed a Water Supply Upgrade Lending Program bylaw, which helps residents to access low interest financing to complete a water supply upgrade for their property.
The Water Supply Upgrade Lending Program operates on a first come, first served basis until the Program budget for the fiscal year has been allocated. Should there be funding available for your proposed Water Supply Upgrade, you will be required to sign a Water Supply Upgrade Lending Program - Financing Agreement that outlines your roles and responsibilities as Qualifying Property Owner, as well as those of the Municipality.
