Community & government events

UVic prides itself on making a vital impact.  We organize events celebrating our dynamic relationships with local organizations, government partners and the community at large.  From funding announcements to royal visits, from parades to local fundraising campaigns, UVic is a vibrant leader in the community.

On Friday, October 2, 2015 members of the UVic community came out to support the Tour de Rock Riders. Approximately 60 people joined the team for a ride around ring road.The Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock raises money for pediatric cancer research and programs for children with a history of cancer. The Tour de Rock team cycles from one end of Vancouver Island to the other, over 14 days, covering 1,000 kilometres.
