We believe that everyone has the right to access services, programs and resources within their own community

-taken from SNP Mission Statement

Saanich Neighbourhood Place officially launched the Royal Oak Neighbourhood House in the fall of 2018. Royal Oak Neighbourhood House is located in the historic Royal Oak School House (opened in 1884).

This new space was made possible through a partnership with Geric Construction, and start-up funds from the United Way of Greater Victoria and the Alexandra Foundation.

Location: 4525 West Saanich Road


The Royal Oak Neighbourhood House provides programming that is responsive to community needs. We work collaboratively with community partners to provide a range of services, resources and opportunities for the community, including:

  • Family support services
  • Services that enhance food security
  • Child development opportunities
  • Programming for older adults
  • Access to other community resources and programs
  • Social Opportunities for the community as a whole
