Community Tables brings people together who live, work or play in a specific region to make the community better

Wanted: people who care for and want to learn more about Colwood.

Started in 2011 by the United Way of Greater Victoria, in partnership with the University of Victoria’s Office of Community-based Research, the Community Tables: Engaging Neighbours project brings people together who live, work or play in a specific region to find solutions and make the community an even greater place to live.

This year, community tables are in Colwood and Brentwood Bay. Graduate students  are also gathering information and stories about Colwood and want to know what the public would like to see the community look like in 10 years. To submit, complete the short online survey at (click Colwood).

The information will be used to create a map highlighting Colwood’s assets and visions.

To learn more about the community tables contact Geoff Cross at or 250-229-7363.
