About Saanich

Serving the People

Saanich blends both the rural and urban on southern Vancouver Island. Welcome to our diverse community! Entrepreneurs, artists, community-builders, farmers and families call Saanich home. More than 110,000 people live here. That means we have the largest population on the island.

We border six other municipalities, including British Columbia's capital, Victoria.

Our motto is Populo Serviendo. It means "serving the people". We work to enhance the quality of life for citizens, visitors and future generations here and in the region. We strive to live in harmony with each other and the environment. We aim to further our citizens' economic, physical and social well-being.
