Message from the Mayor

Mayor Maja Tait
Mayor Maja Tait

Welcome to the District of Sooke’s website!

As a growing community, the District of Sooke strives to adapt its municipal business practices in an effort to provide excellent service and meet community needs. Our website is an example of our commitment to ongoing improvement. Visitors to the site will find new content continually added, a mobile-friendly platform, and opportunities for engagement.

Sooke is a vibrant, dynamic and welcoming community. We are fortunate to be located close to nature, and our town motto of “Where the Rainforest Meets the Sea” speaks to the environmental riches of the area. The District supports land use and development principles that preserve our natural environment, while also creating affordable and accessible housing that allows families to put down roots and thrive as members of the community. Opportunities for community involvement are abundant, our arts and cultural scene is second to none with many festivals and events throughout the year. Our residents are passionate and engaged in civic and volunteer activities.

I am proud to serve as Mayor of Sooke and am honoured to hear from residents regarding their priorities and ideas for our town. Ongoing dialogue and open communication is a top priority of Council. Residents are invited to provide feedback and share their ideas with Council. 

Maja Tait, Mayor
