• CHAMBER POSTPONES BLACK TIE AWARDS AMIDST COVID-19 CONCERNS

    The Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce has made the decision to postpone all events through to the middle of April.  This includes the Black Tie Awards, which was schedule to take place at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre on April 17th with anticipated attendance of over 400 people.  This decision comes following an appeal from BC’s Health Minister earlier this week,  urging the cancellation of all events in which more than 250 people are gathered.
