Municipality of North Cowichan


Located on Vancouver Island, North Cowichan is the largest municipality in the Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD). Check out North Cowichan's Community Profile [PDF - 1.2 MB] for a snapshot of the community, our labour market, and amenities.

North Cowichan is a 'community of communities,' and includes Chemainus, Crofton, Maple Bay and the South End (the area surrounding the City of Duncan, including University Village).

Incorporated in 1873, North Cowichan residents enjoy a relaxed, active lifestyle in a mostly rural setting which also affords many of the amenities of city life.
