Biographical history

The District of Saanich was incorporated on March 1, 1906. The first meeting of Saanich Council was held on Saturday March 10, 1906. Thomas Brydon served as the Municipality's first Reeve. In 1908, Saanich was divided into six (and later seven) administrative wards. Each ward had a representative on council, and the Reeve was elected at large. The ward system was abolished in 1949. Ward 6 seceded from the District of Saanich in 1950 to form the District of Central Saanich. The District of Saanich celebrated its centennial in 2006.


Archival history

Compiled by Jennifer Barr, and later Donald Luxton & Associates, in the course of research for the Saanich Heritage Structures Inventory books published in 1991 and 2008. The material was deposited at Saanich Archives after project completion.
