Regional Recreation Referendum


The Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD), in partnership with its member municipalities, has undertaken a recreation planning project for the past seven years. The phased approach has involved an initial public engagement and needs assessment (Phase 1), collection of facility user data (Phase 2), exploration of regional funding options (Phase 3) and development of a regional recreation strategy (Phase 4).

We are now at the point where a new funding model based on facility usage has been approved by the CVRD Board. The CVRD and its municipal partners are now moving forward with bringing this new funding model to the public to be voted on during a Regional Referendum at the same time as local general elections in October 2022.
