People consider everything south of the Malahat to be Victoria BC. That counts for Greater Victoria, but I distinguish Saanichton, Sidney and North Saanich as something different. The Saanich Peninsula is close to ferry service and the airport. From our new location, we can quickly get to Mill Bay, Vancouver, or Gulf Islands. Via the airport, San Francisco, Vegas, Toronto and other destinations are direct flight away.

What makes Sidney BC and North Saanich great?
Sidney BC and the Saanich Peninsula has an ideal pace. From rolling farmland to great dining, the Peninsula boasts a terrific lifestyle. The population of Sidney is 11, 672. The mainly flat, walk-able community is 5.10 square kilometers. The moderate climate makes it a year-round tourist destination. Sidney’s major economic drivers are manufacturing, retail and tourism. Just a 20 minute drive from downtown Victoria, Sidney is home to the Sidney / Anacortes (Washington, USA) Ferry Terminal and just minutes from the Victoria International Airport and Swartz Bay, BC Ferry Terminal. Sidney boasts many attraction and amenities including a scenic 3.6 kilometre waterfront walkway, a historical museum, the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea Aquarium, enchanting street statues and murals, Mineral World, a 420 ft. Fishing Pier with a thriving marine life Artificial Reef, a vibrant downtown boutique shopping district, and much more. Sidney’s waterfront location allows for many other water-related activities such as boating, sailing, kayaking, diving and fishing.
What makes Saanichton and Central Saanich great?
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. The citizens and government are dedicated to celebrating and preserving our agricultural roots and the bounty of green spaces. The farmland is sprawling but walk-able. You will find me taking long relaxing walks to recharge and plan for the day ahead. You may even see me capturing that wonderful landscape with my drone.
While Victoria gets mired in Winter slush, the bracketing of Brentwood Bay and the Salish Sea makes the Saanich Peninsula balmy to mild– especially compared to the rest of Canada. People can do many things year-round without snow and hail in the way. Sidney’s close proximity to the International Airport and two different ferry terminals makes it an unofficial transportation hub. It’s why a number of warehouses and manufacturers have set up business in the area.
