Economic Development Cowichan is the economic development arm of the Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD).
The CVRD is governed by a 15-member board. The board is comprised of appointed directors from our four municipalities and an elected director from each of the nine electoral areas.
Economic Development Cowichan is a part of the CVRD’s Land Use Services Division. A key part of our mandate is to build connections between community, business, and local government. Working in collaboration with our regional economic development partners, we focus on:
Strengthening the regional economy by supporting and attracting businesses and sector development
Strengthening communities through engagement and support for community-based initiatives
Communicating the advantages of living, working and investing in Cowichan
