Sustainability

Oak Bay is committed to principles of environmental sustainability and so policies and programs are periodically reviewed to ensure goals are being met. Many issues such as ocean waters, sreams, and air quality are regional in nature; in these instances, most studies and reports are performed in alignment with other regional municipalities through the Capital Regional District (CRD) - these reports can be found on the CRD Website.

Oak Bay-specific reports related to sustainability are available for download below. Copies of these documents are also available for purchase from Corporate Services at the Municipal Hall - please contact us in advance to request a copy available for pickup during regular business hours.
