" Average people and the average community can change the world. "

Lois Gibbs 


The small rural community of Shirley is located 16 kilometres west of Sooke. Shirley is home to approximately 500 permanent residents. 

The Sheringham Point Lighthouse was built in 1912 and is still in use today. 

There are many parks nearby with trails for hiking and biking. There are several beaches in and around Shirley for beachcombing, swimming, and sunbathing. The fishing is always good around Shirley. 

There is little in the way of services in Shirley. All the services one would require can be found in nearby Sooke. Shirley does have a community hall, built in 1937, and a restaurant.
