About the VPRA

Mission Statement

Victoria Point is that land enclosed by Gill Street to the west, Provincial Highway 12 to the north to the extreme east end of Collins Drive, and surrounded by Lake Simcoe on three sides, specifically Shannon Bay, Grape Island Channel and Smiths Bay.

  • To provide a strong unified voice for the residents of the area on matters of interest.

  • Promote and to protect the wildlife and sensitive eco-system which dominates our neighborhood.
