Cowichan Aquatic Centre Expansion

In 2018, North Cowichan received a Federal Gas Tax Grant of $2.4 million to expand and renovate the much loved Cowichan Aquatic Centre. The expansion will include:

  • a larger competitive pool deck,
  • new folding bleachers,
  • community program space,
  • expansion of the upstairs gym and group fitness rooms, and
  • new private areas for fitness consultations.


Construction began in June 2020 during a complete facility closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Completing the renovation works during this unanticipated and unfortunate time, however, minimizes future closures and service interruptions for users of the aquatic centre. 

Estimated Reopening

The renovation is being completed in stages. We anticipate reopening gradually, resuming some services in late fall, subject to a council-approved COVID-19 reopening plan, in alignment with guidelines from the Provincial Health Officer and senior levels of government.
