Welcome message from site

Welcome to the Cowichan Valley! “Cowichan” literally means warm land and we benefit from one of the warmest climates in all of Canada.

We have two great locations and both are close to the ocean and some of the best kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, sailing, and fishing you can imagine. We also have world-class mountain biking, golfing, and hiking. We are also located in the wine growing region of the island with over a dozen wineries spread between our two clinics. We are a short drive to either Nanaimo or Victoria.

We look forward to hosting you for your next placement where you can enjoy the best the valley has to offer!
