Local Government Awareness Week Events

Duncan, BC – Ever wondered what services are provided by your local government? Local Government Awareness Week, May 21-27, is dedicated to helping citizens get to know their local government and learn about the many programs and services it provides. It also recognizes the important role citizens play in shaping their community through participation in local governance.

“In some way, local government touches everyone, every day,” explains Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) Board Chair and North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure. “This week provides a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about what local government does and how they can be involved.”

To celebrate, North Cowichan, City of Duncan and the CVRD will be at the Chemanius Farmers Market on Wednesday, May 24 and Duncan Farmers Market on Saturday, May 27. We’ll have giveaways, info, and prizes.
