The RCMP is the agency responsible for security for the visit.  They are best positioned to answer any questions about policing for the visit.

 

What is the itinerary for the Royal Family’s visit?

The Department of Canadian Heritage is the host department for the Royal visit and is responsible for communicating the itinerary. You may contact them for more information.

 

Will Victoria and Esquimalt traffic be affected during the Royal Family’s visit?

Yes. We greatly appreciate your patience during these events. Best efforts are being made to keep these disruptions to a minimum.

We will do our best to communicate road closures and traffic impacts in a timely manner during the visit. From time to time, traffic will be delayed.

We will share all road closures regarding the Royal Family’s visit as we are able using the #yyjtraffic hashtag.
