About Us

Created by the community, for the community

In 1922, the District of Saanich and the City of Victoria partnered to create the Board of Cemetery Trustees, a not for profit corporation, to operate Royal Oak Burial Park. Because we are community owned, our motivations are different mainly because our bottom line, first and foremost, is about helping people. We’re here to provide a valuable service to Greater Victoria as a trusted community member. For more than 90 years we have faithfully served the region, meeting its changing needs while lovingly maintaining one of the largest, most picturesque cemeteries in Western Canada.
