At Cowichan Eyecare, we believe that our communities deserve the best vision and eye care available! Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. It’s important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, and even if your vision is sharp. At Cowichan Eyecare, with offices in Chemainus, Lake Cowichan, Duncan and Cobble Hill, we take the time to get to know you, your vision and your lifestyle.

Fish Vancouver Island’s most productive freshwater systems with some of the most experienced outfitters in the area. Kenzie and his team of guides have been guiding and fishing these waterways for decades, and know where the fish are and how to catch them. We live on the Cowichan River, so we have access to parts of the river that no other guides do! We can do sections of this river that other guides can’t. Don’t be disappointed with someone else when you can’t drift a certain section of the river because your guide can’t pull his boat out there!
We specialize in customized fishing trips, so whether you are an expert or just learning, regardless of your age, we have a qualified guide to make your fishing trip successful.
Spend your day fishing with top quality fishing equipment from our various equipment sponsors including Islander Reels and Sage fishing rods just to name a few. Let our guides take care of your equipment for the day so you don’t lose a moment of precious fishing time.
Gerard’s Specialty Foods Ltd. is a family operation, started in Lake Cowichan in the summer of 2012. Our Founder, President and CEO, Gerard Burg (Gerry) was a Master Pastry Chef, with over 60 years experience and actually developed his concept of ‘beef strudel’ in his native country, the Netherlands.
He was born in 1934 and lived in Holland during the Nazi occupation. He began his training at the age of 14 years. By the age of 19 years, he won First Prize in the prestigious Brussels Fair, with a 5 foot chocolate and sugar statue of a bull fighter on horseback and a bull. Gerry went on to Africa where he was a Chef on the famous Blue Train. Meanwhile, his family has emigrated to Canada; he joined them in 1958 and quickly acquired his first job as Chef in the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. He went on to own three companies, taught at Georgian College and finally moved to Vancouver Island in 1998.
He continued with his craft, creating breathtaking wedding cakes, crafted in the old style of European masters. (some of his amazing cake samples are still on display in his office.) But he had always dreamed of creating a business with his delicious strudels and with the help of family, he finally pursued his dream in Lake Cowichan.
Gerry’s brother-in-law is our Vice-President, Graham Brawnell. Born in Vancouver, he grew up on a cattle ranch in B.C.’s Interior. He eventually owned Tinit Manufacturing and from this business he gained manufacturing knowledge to Gerard’s’. He is in charge of Inventory, Shipping and Receiving.
Secretary-Treasurer and Office Manager is Gerry’s widow, Glenda, who brings organization to our company. She has had a varied career, including real estate and civic celebration management. She has written a book about her family’s adventures on their cattle ranch.
Glenda’s son, William Osborne, who was trained by Gerry to assume the leadership, is now our President and CEO. He joined the company with an interest in franchising our company in the future. He was our Director of Sales & Marketing.
William’s partner, Dana is our Director of Product Development and is currently overseeing Sales and Marketing until we appoint a replacement.
Gerry’s twin, Father Joseph Burg, has joined our Board of Directors.
