The District of Sooke is the local government body responsible for providing services for the residents of the municipality of Sooke.
A municipality is a corporation of the residents of its area and the governing body of a municipality is its Council. District of Sooke Council is composed of a Mayor and six (6) Councillors who hold office for a three (3) year term.
The citizens of the District of Sooke voted to become a municipality in 1999 and upon incorporation elected their first Mayor and Council.
Council is a legislative (law-making) body with the responsibility for exercising virtually all legislative and administrative authority conveyed upon the District of Sooke by the Province through the Community Charter, the Local Government Act and other statutes. Together, the Mayor and Councillors are ultimately responsible for establishing the policies of the District of Sooke, for the carrying out of those policies, and for the general administration of civic business.
