* Streamlining the development approval process to be more efficient and responsive.
* Creating bylaws to attract business and investment.
* Adoption of the Official Community Plan.

“The road ahead is exciting. North Cowichan is home to families and open for business to help them grow. As a family man I know we need stability and certainty. We need good jobs and strong businesses. We need a place to live, work and play, everyday.”

Thank you for your continued support focusing on creating a climate that will stimulate the economy and create jobs, so that we can build and maintain our public services and amenities, while providing real value for taxpayers.
