Central Saanich was the original home and a popular summer hunting and fishing ground on the Peninsula for the First Nations Saanich tribes - the Tsawout and Tsartlip.
In the early 1800's, Central Saanich developed into a rich agricultural area. The motto on the crest of the municipality reads "Land of Plenty".

Shadowed by the back bone of the Malahat's mountainous terrain the peninsula often is warmer in summer and sees a dusting snow in winter when other parts of Greater Victoria are experiencing cool temperatures with rain.
