The purpose of the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria (ICA) is to support the full integration of newcomer immigrants and refugees into the social, economic and civic life of the Capital Region of British Columbia.

We acknowledge the Coast Salish Nations on whose traditional territories we do our work to support immigrants and refugees in the capital region.

We are grateful to live, work and learn here, and we honour the Nations who have always cared for these lands, waters and air and continue to do so today.

Our main office is located on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen-speaking First Peoples, the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. Our services extend into the territories of approximately 20 First Nations in the Capital Regional District.

We welcome your support. Click here to make your tax-deductible contribution today.
