Saanich

13.7 C
Victoria

As the most populous region in Greater Victoria, with over 115,000 residents, Saanich features bustling urban areas, major retail centres, and two post-secondary campuses with robust student populations. But, despite being a residential, educational, and professional hub, Saanich boasts more than its fair share of charm and beauty. With the majority of homes being single-family residences on large, beautifully curated lots, and a backdrop of expansive valleys, peaked mountains, rolling farmland, and coastal bays, Saanich is a suburban paradise. 

Homes and businesses are complemented by an extensive web of bike lanes and walking and running paths and are complemented by lakes, beaches, and recreation sites. Saanich neighborhoods are a short commute to all the major Greater Victoria destinations, allowing residents to enjoy all the benefits of suburban living while remaining closely connected to the pulse of the urban core.
