How’d you like to support local AND take advantage of a wide range of discounts at popular Victoria businesses?

With Discover Local YYJ, you can do just that – and then some!

The event is an initiative to promote the small businesses in the Greater Victoria Area that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and its goal is to raise awareness – who knows, you could discover your new favourite business in their list!

How does it work?

Discover Local YYJ has partnered with locally owned and operated small businesses to provide discounts and special offers to pass holders between August 15th and 30th. 

Open to everyone, people can purchase a Discover Pass online, then use the pass from August 15th-30th to claim the exclusive promotions and discounts offered by impressive array of vendors in their directory – not only in person throughout Greater Victoria, but also online.

Included in the massive list of over 125 local businesses are a nutritionist, an interior designer, financial advisors, an insurance broker, counsellors, coaches, a pet walker, a boudoir and portrait photographer, and so much more!

They also have a furniture store, food truck, vegan butchers, coffee shop/café, a custom leather bag designer, island-made clay and mud masks, golf simulators rooms, local walking tours, and even delicious teas.

The Victoria Women’s Professional Group is a local nonprofit organization that has created and is hosting Discover Local YYJ, and all the proceeds from tickets sales help VWPG fund the operation and expenses of facilitating this event. Any proceeds above expenses go towards the initiatives of VWPG.
