Cowichan takes its name from the Indigenous word Quw’utsun,meaning The Warm Land.
We are Canada’s only maritime Mediterranean climatic zone -- home to the warmest year–round temperatures in the country. For decades, Cowichan has been producing amazing artisanal food and drink from the region’s burgeoning farms, wineries, cideries and distilleries. From concerts and festivals to outdoor fun, like biking, hiking,fishing,kayaking and more, Cowichan features a long list of things to do year round.
