The cowichan valley offers many unique facilities and establishments for your workshops, conferences, retreats and team building activities.

Meetings + Retreats

We’ve all been to meetings and conferences held inside the box. That is to say, within the confines of the same old conference centre located in the same old downtown core. If the goal of these gatherings is to shift perspective and broaden thinking, wouldn’t they be better held in a place that doesn’t conform to typical settings? In Cowichan, this is what we offer meeting planners: an accessible location to commune on the edge of nature. Not surprisingly, fresh thinking is far more achievable when attendees are exposed to fresh air, natural beauty and locally grown food. Whether it’s a team building retreat on the shores of Lake Cowichan or a professional development workshop in the vineyard — you can plan something memorable and completely out of the box here. In Cowichan, there’s accommodation and meeting facilities to fit all budgets and needs. Getting here isn’t a difficult proposition either. We’re easily accessible by land sea and air. While some choose to enjoy the ferry trip from the Lower Mainland, many prefer to fly. But don’t expect in-flight service, because by seaplane it can be as little as 20 minutes from Downtown Vancouver! If you’re thinking about a meeting outside of the box, give us a call and we’ll help you every step of the way.
