Sooke, British Columbia
Sooke is an incorporated community situated on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Canada. About a 45 minute drive from the city of Victoria (the capital of British Columbia), Sooke is near the entrance to Sooke Basin, a large ocean inlet that is often mistaken for a lake by first-time visitors. Most people who live along the edge of Sooke basin self-identify as Sooke residents, even though the District of Sooke's political boundary is limited to the Northern edge of Sooke Basin. Recent changes have led to a privately owned tip of East Sooke casting adrift and joining Sooke! All other residents are legally residents of East Sooke (which, despite its name, is actually south of the main Sooke community).

The population of Sooke is roughly 12,000. The town core straddles the Sooke Road for about one kilometer. Famous places in Sooke include the Sooke Harbour House and the Sooke Potholes.

Employed Sooke residents are either primarily associated with the school district (largest employer in Sooke) or agricultural and resource industries such as fishing and logging (not many now), or commute to work in Victoria.
