Official Community Plan

In June 2018, Esquimalt Council adopted a new Official Community Plan (OCP), replacing the last OCP, which was adopted in 2007.

The OCP is a statement of the municipality’s goals and policies and is intended to provide direction for future growth and development in the community.

The CRD released the Capital Regional District Housing Needs Assessment in 2020. While this is the most recent version, please note that the report includes analysis based on data that may no longer reflect the realities of the current housing situation in Esquimalt.  Readers are cautioned to critically examine the sources and date of the data in the Report before making decisions related to the present housing situation in Esquimalt.
