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 114,000 people live here giving us 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.
