The District of Central Saanich
Central Saanich has a population of close to 14,000 people. The
dominant age groups are in the 25-44 range (adult baby boomers)
and the 55 and up range. Agriculture is the most extensive land
use in the community with pockets of housing ranging from hobby
farms to townhouses dispersed throughout. The necessary services
are provided through two core commercial areas in Brentwood Bay
and Saanichton, supported nicely by the Keating X Road industrial/commercial
Because of its attractive rural lifestyle, Central Saanich experienced
considerable demands for development during the 1980s. The overriding
philosophy of the community is to retain the current rural character,
agricultural land base and as much as possible provide for slow,
long-term growth where it will have the least impact on the agricultural
lands and the environment. Central Saanich has the Sunshine Hills
golf course for golfing enthusiasts.
Central Saanich has its own police force and Fire Department.
Garbage collection is done on a private basis.
