Cowichan Tribes are an integral part of the Cowichan Valley as they are one of the largest employers in the region and invest significant dollars into the local and regional economy.
Closer collaborations with our neighbouring governments are being forged everyday as there is growing recognition that there is more to be gained by working together collectively than pursuing separate paths. This was formally recognized by the signing of a Bridge Building Protocol Agreement in 2003 with leaders of the City of Duncan, the District of North Cowichan, and the Cowichan Valley Regional District. Since then Cowichan Tribes are working together on a variety of initiatives.
Cowichan Tribes consists of a relatively young population, with a large percentage of the population under the age of 35.
Cowichan Tribes consists of seven traditional villages: Kw’amutsun, Qwum’yiqun’, Hwulqwselu, S’amuna’, L’uml’umuluts, Hinupsum, Tl’ulpalus.
The Nation has been delegated responsibility for a variety of services including children & families welfare, education, health, housing, membership, and social development.
Cowichan Tribes is represented by the Hul'qumi'num Treaty Group
