North America's first Cittaslow designated community
In August 2009, thanks to the efforts of the Cowichan Valley Regional District, Mara Jernigan of Fairburn Farm, Hilary Abbott of Hilary's Cheese, Vanessa Elton of Affinity Guesthouse, and Bruce Stewart of True Grain Bread, a framework was finally found to preserve the beauty and pace of the little seaside village of Cowichan Bay.
Since that time, the Cittaslow Cowichan Bay Society has worked hard to determine its role and carry out its mandate in the community. We are continually working towards our goal of improving the quality of life for residents and visitors of Cowichan Bay.
