Victoria Avenue is one of the main east-west streets in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Victoria Avenue begins as the Trans-Canada Highway in east Regina. The street is lined with big box retail stores, hotels, restaurants and a shopping mall. As it approaches towards the downtown, the Trans-Canada makes a south turn onto the Ring Road. Victoria Avenue continues towards the downtown where it meets with heritage residential, returns to commercial in the downtown core, then crosses Albert Street. At this point Victoria Avenue becomes a residential area again and comes to an end just before reaching Lewvan Drive.

It has the Asian ethnic enclave, Little India for Indo-Canadians who reside in Regina.

Victoria Avenue on the east side of the city is known as Victoria Avenue East, affectionately known as "Vic East".

Named in honour of Queen Victoria, Victoria Avenue crosses Albert Street (named in honour of Prince Albert, the Queen's consort) downtown
