The Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce was first organized in 1946 as a Board of Trade. We continue to be in business for business, and are proud to support community organizations and residents of the Cowichan Lake area.
Our Chamber plays an active role in all aspects of the communities around the Lake. We have committees to cover tourism, membership, community events and economic development. The Chamber meets on a regular basis with “business after business” meetings hosted by one of our members. We endeavor to have educational and informative meetings that allow for networking among our business community. Guest speakers are often a part of the meetings. Anyone can attend our Chamber meetings. For more information call the Cowichan Lake Visitor/Business Centre at 250-749-3244.
The Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce is organized to advance the general economic welfare of Cowichan Lake through business in the surrounding Communities, so that the citizens and all areal of its business community shall prosper. All necessary means of promotion shall be provided and particular attention and emphasis shall be given to the economic, civic, commercial, cultural and education interest of the area.
The Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce is a member of the BC Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. As well, we meet on a regular basis with the other four chambers in our Region.
