New Archives Exhibit!
Diverse Saanich

Saanich Archives is celebrating our rich and diverse cultural history with our exhibit, “Diverse Saanich” at Cedar Hill Rec Centre.

Diversity has existed on the Saanich Peninsula since long before the first Europeans arrived, and for nearly 200 years immigrants from across the world have chosen to make this area their home. This exhibit tells some of those stories.

Exhibit runs February 1 to 27, 2020
