Mayor Maja Tait

District of Sooke

Maja is extremely grateful to serve as President of UBCM for the 2019/2020 term. After being nominated by her peers as a challenger from the floor at the 2016 Annual Convention, Maja has spent the past three terms as a Vice President. 

Originally from the Hamlet of Bragg Creek, Alberta, Maja and her husband moved to Vancouver Island in 1997, settling in Sooke in 2006. Maja served two terms as Councillor before being elected as Mayor in 2014, and again in 2018. She welcomed her first child while serving as Mayor in 2015. Maja is thankful to work alongside a strong Council who bring diverse experience and perspectives to Council discussions, and whose focus on good governance and mutual respect is an inspiration to her. 

Recently retired from a 20-year career in project and property management, Maja enjoys spending time outdoors with her young family, or finding a few hours to explore the Sooke Hills on her mountain bike. 

Maja looks forward to deepening her understanding of the issues faced by Local Governments  across BC, and invites members to contact her at either or (250) 514 6466.
