Advertise on Sooke.org

Sooke.org is for locals, by locals.

Sooke.org is the longest continuously-running Sooke community website, since year 2000. Born-and-raised Sooke resident Caprina Valentine recently resumed the helm and we continue to update the website. While others have come and gone, Sooke.org has a proven track record and staying power over 20+ years.
Business listings support the community by making it possible to keep this website updated and listing community groups and events for free.
We consistently receive feedback that Sooke.org is a valuable resource for local and prospective residents, reaching people through our long-term exceptional search rankings.
