Living in Central Saanich
Central Saanich is a friendly and active community spanning the middle of the Saanich Peninsula. Home to the Tsartlip and Tsawout First Nations, we have more than 16,000 residents. From Island View Beach on the east to the Saanich Inlet on the west, the region includes fantastic parks, beaches and amenities. We have the highest concentration of agricultural production in the region, and are dedicated to celebrating and preserving our agricultural roots and the bounty of green spaces.
The schools in our community are part of Saanich School District (SD 63), and provide safe, culturally diverse, and nurturing learning environments. The schools offer a variety of quality programs and place an emphasis on social responsibility.
Local celebrations include:
- Brentwood Bay Festival held in early June at Pioneer Park
- Music in the Park held each Wednesday evening in July and August from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Pioneer Park
- Annual Yellow Wolf Intertribal Powwow held the first weekend in August at Tsartlip First Nation Fairground at 800 Stelly’s X Rd. in Brentwood Bay
- Saanich Fair on the Labour Day weekend (the last long weekend of the summer) at the Saanich Fairgrounds
