• CHAMBER ON TOUR
    #Staycation Edition

     
    Chamber on Tour originally began as an opportunity for Chamber Members to get a behind-the-scenes look at other Member businesses. In 2018, we visited 23 Cowichan businesses from a cross-section of industries. Some of the highlights included Promac Manufacturing, Arbutus Farms, Harlequin Nature Graphics and Heartwood Studios along with several wineries and craft distilleries/breweries.
     
    This year's Chamber on Tour #Staycation Edition is taking on a slightly different form and is all about supporting our local tourism and hospitality Members in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We'll be programming a series weekly, half-day excursions, during July and August, that will each include a local attraction and a local cafe, restaurant or eatery. Each outing will accommodate 6-12 people (depending on the safety parameters of the venues and activities) and both Members and the general public are welcome to participate.
     
    With international travel restrictions still in place, and cross country travel not recommended, Chamber on Tour #Staycation Edition is all about rediscovering all the fantastic offerings here in the Cowichan and keeping our vacation dollars right here in our communities.
