Welcome to my website
Are you considering a move to the Cowichan Valley? The Duncan area is a terrific place to raise a family, begin a career, or retire away from the city life. This area is considered special because it’s on the edge of wilderness forest yet less than an hour from the international sophistication of Victoria. Open spaces, easy access to waterfront activities like boating and swimming, and a healthy down-to-earth lifestyle bring people from all over Canada to explore and stay. Of course, if you live here you already know the magic of the Cowichan Valley.
This area is home to a branch of the Vancouver Island University and enables hundreds of local students to attend classes locally for degrees and trades. The professional work opportunities on Vancouver Island are increasing every year as the technology and resources industries grow.
Duncan is known for its thriving artist community and a vibrant First Nations demographic that energises the local communities with cultural vigor. The name Cowichan means “The Warm Land” and that is especially true in Lake Cowichan, 20 minutes west of Duncan, which has Canada’s highest mean temperatures.
If you’re looking for a lifestyle change that will nourish the soul and feed the spirit, then you’re looking for the Cowichan Valley.
