The Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce, along with the Sooke Region Museum, Transition Sooke, Sooke Region Tourism Association, and Sooke Women in Business are pleased to sponsor and host the 2017 Provincial General Election Information Series in preparation of the upcoming Provincial General Election.

Government 101, presented by David Stocks on Thursday, April 13, 2017 starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Sooke Region Museum is the first of the series to present a beginner's guide or refresher talk about the structure of government, the different roles and titles, commonly used terms, and other topics many feel they should know but perhaps don't.  

Tea and coffee will be served compliments of the Museum.

This information session is open to the public.
