The local area has a new tool in its bid to attract outside investment.
Economic Development Cowichan has created a series of online Community Profiles designed to showcase both the overall region and the communities within it.
Acting economic development manager Kathy Lachmann said the profiles promote investment opportunities and the quality of life and amenities that make our region desirable.
Separate profiles are available for North Cowichan, Ladysmith and Saltair/North Oyster.
The profiles link to statistical data and other web sites and resources within the Cowichan Valley Regional District.
