Economic Development Cowichan has some exciting news to share about a new made-in-Cowichan collaboration – Buy Local Cowichan website.
Buy Local Cowichan connects consumers to local businesses while COVID-19 restrictions are in place. Registered business can share information on their products for sale, services, hours of operations, and how to safely order and pick up.
All Cowichan businesses are invited to be showcased on Buy Local Cowichan.

Businesses can input a description of products, services, hours and contact information. This helps customers by providing a comprehensive, and up-to-date, catalogue of opportunities to buy local.
This website is a part of a larger marketing campaign to connect consumers with local businesses and support economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Buy Local Cowichan will officially be launched on May 20. It will be promoted on partners’ Facebook pages, web pages, and through local media to encourage people to shop locally.
