In recognition of the Cowichan Valley's rich historical and cultural resources , the CVRD Board established heritage conservation as a service to electoral areas in 1999 and a Community Heritage Register in 2009. The intent of the heritage program is to promote public awareness of community heritage values and to support heritage conservation and heritage tourism initiatives. The CVRD is committed to heritage conservation by documenting significant historic places on the Community Heritage Register.
