Victoria Arbour is a Canadian paleontologist, specialising in the paleobiology of ankylosaurs and the evolution of animal armour and weapons. She currently works as the Curator of Paleontology at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

She grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and became interested in dinosaurs at a young age when an animatronic dinosaur exhibit called Dinosaurs Alive visited the city.

Victoria finished her Bachelors degree in 2006 from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, and finished her Masters and PhD at the University of Alberta in 2009 and 2014, all within Canada.

Through her studies and work, Victoria has travelled to Argentina, China, Mongolia, Poland, Russia, South Korea, the United States, and across Canada.

In 2006, she was part of the team that described the first dinosaur fossils that were found in British Columbia, Canada. Victoria has also discovered and named a number of new ankylosaur species.
