There are many buildings and homes that are important reminders of the history of our area. If you have ever wondered about the story behind that old home that you pass by each day, you can click on the link below to find more information.
The Saanich Heritage Register describes those sites, passed by Resolution of Saanich Council, determined to have community heritage value. Sites on the Register have been consistently surveyed and researched to develop a profile of their significance, and this document is a summary of available information on these important heritage sites. This information will allow heritage factors to be considered in the initial stages of the planning process, not as an afterthought or a regret.
We acknowledge that the District of Saanich lies within the territories of the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples represented by the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations and the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples represented by the W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin), SȾÁUTW̱ (Tsawout), W̱SIḴEM (Tseycum) and MÁLEXEȽ (Malahat) Nations.
We are committed to celebrating the rich diversity of people in our community. We are guided by the principle that embracing diversity enriches the lives of all people. We all share the responsibility for creating an equitable and inclusive community and for addressing discrimination in all forms.
