About the OCP

The Official Community Plan (OCP) is the main document that guides growth and change in Saanich. It provides a long-term vision for a livable community based on shared values and sustainability. The OCP works together with other plans and policies.

Local Area Plans and Action Plans are adopted by Council Resolution, but do not form part of the OCP Bylaw.
