Retail, Service, Manufacturing, Agricultural

Chemainus and the Cowichan Valley regions have attracted many types of businesses over the years.  Originally resource-based industries were the primary employers.  Now, many smaller industrial and manufacturing companies, tourism related retail and accommodations, and other specialty businesses have established themselves in this region.  The island offers an extraordinary lifestyle - clean fresh air, an abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities, and a broad range of employment opportunities as well to make this area a desirable one to live and work in.

Our new Business Directory will cover the region - Chemainus, Crofton, Ladysmith, Cowichan Bay and Cowichan Lake areas for your convenience.  Please check back while this important resource grows.
