Taxi, shuttle or public transit-pick your poison.

Like almost every airport in the world, YYJ has a website and on that site is a ground transportation page:

My quick look at the shuttle - it would be $63 for 3 adults during the daytime - if after 9pm - then its $45 for all three. Depending on time of day and traffic a taxi would cost 55-65. I'd choose a taxi over the shuttle because the overall price is close and the taxi gets you door to door service and with all your baggage and a baby (shuttle will just find a nearby drop off location and then you'd have to walk from there).

Public transit takes an hour to get from YYJ into downtown Victoria.

A cab would give you the most personalised service.
