The People of the Warm Land Welcome You
With 4,600+ members, we are the largest single First Nation Band in British Columbia.
Our ‘warm land’ is located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley region on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Learn about our history and culture, find out about the wide range of member services and check out the exciting projects and initiatives we have underway.
DFO has closed the Fraser River due to conservation concerns regarding sockeye. The closure took place at sunset on Thursday August 11, 2016 and will be closed until further notice. This closure means that Cowichan Tribes will not be receiving food fish to disperse to our community. We will be monitoring the DFO closure closely and will inform the community of any changes.
If you would like to keep track of the closure, please visit the Department of Fisheries and Oceans webpage.

Cowichan Tribes in the News
A plan to improve transportation in Cowichan Tribes communities has won a prestigious award from the Canadian Institute of Planners. The Award for Planning Excellence is the highest award an urban-planning project can receive in Canada, and only three others were recognized by the CIP this year out of 55 submissions.
Cowichan Tribes expects a new and innovative pilot program will dramatically improve health care for its members. The 18-month program, announced in a ceremony at the Quw’utsun’ Cultural and Conference Centre on Tuesday, July 19, is called “Closing the Circle of Life”.
