Welcome to the Cowichan Valley

Centrally located between the cities of Victoria and Nanaimo, Duncan is ideally situated to enjoy both city lights and country nights. It offers a rare combination of rural quiet and city sophistication blended into one well-located small city that is within commuting distance of both Vancouver Island centres.

Looking for something to do? The Cowichan Valley is the gateway to Lake Cowichan and the wild, west coast. The city of Victoria and it’s hip urban scene is just a short drive south.

Did you know that the name Cowichan comes from Quw’utsun’, an Indigenous word? It means The Warm Land and it’s a perfect description because the Cowichan Valley has the highest mean annual temperature in Canada which means year round golf, sailing, and outdoor activities.
