New Economic Development Cowichan Website Highlights Changemakers in the Cowichan Valley


Duncan, BC - Economic Development Cowichan, a division of the Cowichan Valley Regional District, is going live with a new website that celebrates innovative community and business leaders in the region.

The website showcases the region as a dynamic location to both invest in and put down roots. This new resource offers tools for business, insights on living in Cowichan and a portfolio of changemakers from across the region.

The website launch takes place alongside the creation of a four-year strategic plan for Economic Development Cowichan. The five key goals of the plan include Business Retention, Attraction and Expansion, Sector Development, Strengthening Communities, Communicating Our Story, and Aligning with CVRD Strategic Activities.

“These goals are the result of many people who generously shared their insights with Economic Development Cowichan,” says Chair Jon Lefebure. “As the website and strategic plan evolve, we will continue to welcome this input.”

The website’s blog profiles the activities and partnerships currently engaged in by Economic Development Cowichan. Followers can sign up at to be notified of these initiatives as well as receive updates to the community and sector profile sections of the site.

“Economic Development chose a ‘changemakers’ theme for our website because of the vibrant people and places in Cowichan,” says Economic Development Cowichan Manager Amy Melmock. “As we embrace our changemakers, the website helps build a dialogue with our community.”
