The District of Saanich is holding an Indigenous-only Community Planning Engagement Session this coming January 12th.

When: January 12th, 9:00 am-1:00 pm

Where: Tsawout Gym

This forum is being held to solicit W̱SÁNEĆ perspectives and vision for the future of the forests and biodiversity on the Saanich peninsula. 

The feedback gathered during this session is used to inform Urban Forests and Biodiversity in the District of Saanich. The forthcoming Official Community Plan will shape Saanich’s Urban Forestry and Biodiversity Conservation Strategy, for many years to come. 

While the WLC is working hard to ensure W̱SÁNEĆ interests are heard at the municipal level, this is an opportunity for community members to share their vision for the future directly with the District of Saanich. 

The event is taking place January 12th from 9am-1pm

When: January 12th, 9am-1:00pm

Where: Tsawout Gym

Win: All attendees will be entered to win Gift Cards up to $100 from Visa, Walmart and Thrifty’s.
