Since 1981 the Sooke Region Museum has hosted the region’s official Visitor Centre, part of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture & Arts Visitor Centre network. We serve visitors from around the world with inquiries in person, by mail, email and phone.
United Way's Better at Home program helps BC' older adults continue living independently in their own homes by providing simple, non-medical home support services. Its unique seniors planning for seniors' approach means older adults contribute to the design, operation and evaluation of their local program. If you are a senior 65 or older living in our community you are eligible for this program. Seniors who receive Better at Home services will pay a fee based on their income. Some services are free of charge.
Services provided by Sooke Region Better at Home include:
The Juan de Fuca Salmon Restoration Society was formed as a result of a symposium on salmon organized by the Sooke Region Historical Society in September 2002 which was held at Edward Milne Community School. Many presenters from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds of experience made contributions to the two-day program, titled SALMON: PAST–PRESENT-FUTURE.
A group of Juan de Fuca residents has formed a non-profit society to launch a news and advertising publication for the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area to provide a forum for our rural communities to share news, exchange ideas and develop a sense of community. The publication will give businesses within and outside the electoral area an opportunity to promote their products and services and reach potential customers. We hope to provide current information about the region and its services for the many tourists who visit the area. Our goal is to protect, preserve and enhance rural life.
As Juan de Fuca regional residents we share this in common:
We are gravely troubled by the staggering rate and volume of deforestation in our region. We believe that our forests are being grossly mismanaged, and that these lands which should represent our commons have been unjustly expropriated in the name of fast profit for industry shareholders, at the expense of ecological sustainability and what is literally the birthright ground for future generations.
Our vision is two-fold:
The Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) provides a range of programs and services to address the unique needs of military members and their families. We offer some programs in the Sooke Region directly.
Building Bridges supports children, youth and adults with disabilities and their families in Sooke and surrounding areas.
By focusing on the individual, Building Bridges Community Support empowers people with diverse abilities to achieve their maximum potential.
Building Bridges Community Support envisions filling the gaps in services for people with diverse abilities in Greater Victoria. This includes offering a variety of support and services for the individuals while fostering a culture of excellence and continual improvement.
