In 2009 Cowichan Bay became North America’s first Cittaslow community. Cittaslow communities are characterized by people who; take time to build community relationships, celebrate the community’s unique history and traditions, promote craftsmanship and environmental stewardship, maintain the community’s distinct character, and engage residents and visitors by sharing in high quality living. The Cittaslow International network is now comprised of 187 towns in 28 countries.
