North Cowichan is committed to transparency and public involvement in local government processes. This commitment is described in more detail in the Council Communications Plan, which was adopted in 2012.

Attend a Council Meeting

A great way to get engaged is to attend a Council meeting. The 2019 Council Calendar [PDF - 75 KB] has been approved; however, please check the live event calendar for any last-minute changes.

In 2017, North Cowichan began using PlaceSpeak, an online location-based citizen engagement platform, for consulting with residents on an on-going basis. 

PlaceSpeak is transforming the way people interact with local decision-makers. Not everyone can attend in-person open houses and council meetings, and with PlaceSpeak it is possible for us to genuinely communicate online with local residents.

North Cowichan residents are encouraged to sign up today: www.placespeak.com. Receive timely notifications of initiatives in your area and neighbourhood, provide feedback based on where you live, and influence decisions in a meaningful way!
