Welcome to Vancouver Island/
The Cowichan Valley...

Warm Land...

Cowichan: derived from the Coast Salish word Khowutzun, literally translates into "back warmed by the sun."

Conveniently located on southern Vancouver Island, the Cowichan experiences four distinct seasons and clean fresh air. It has Canada’s mildest winter temperatures and long, pleasant summers.

Spectacular scenery, ocean, clean lakes and mountains as well as great outdoor recreation opportunities await you.

The Cowichan is made up of small, safe communities where you feel welcome, and has a proud First Nations heritage.
