Welcome to the Sooke Men’s Shed!

Are you an older man looking to do some hands-on wood working, mechanical repairs and tinkering in a congenial setting?

Based on the Australian movement, this organization is designed to help deal with social isolation. The intention of the organization is not to be exclusionary, but rather to meet a need of a specific group of people. While not directly a ‘health’ program, Men’s Sheds have been shown to help deal with social isolation and thus help improve the quality of life. The idea is that “men don’t talk face to face, they talk shoulder to shoulder”.
The Men’s Shed provides a space for men to have a workshop environment where they can do hands on projects for themselves and the community in a collaborative atmosphere.
The Shed is hosted by the Sooke Region Museum.
Check back for updates and meetings – we hope to organize a meeting for spring/summer 2024.

Thanks to the Canadian Government New Horizons program for assisting with this program!
