How would you rate your quality of life in the Cowichan Valley?

What is it about this place that makes you call it home?

This summer, Social Planning Cowichan is collecting what it calls Community Snapshots covering topics ranging from arts and culture, to climate change and food security, poverty and vulnerability.

It’s all about highlighting successes and areas needing improvement, according to project leader Kathleen Heggie.

To get involved, you can take the Community Happiness Survey by following the link on the Social Planning Cowichan website ( or Facebook Page then sign up or log in & select “CowichanValley2016.”

There’s also a Cowichan Valley story survey and even a photo contest where participants can take it one step further and include a photo that captures what matters most to you and/or what concerns you the most along with an explanatory caption.

Your photo might even win you a one-night stay on a beautiful float home in Cowichan Bay, plus dinner for two.

Results will be posted in the fall.

For more information, contact Kathleen Heggie at or 250-745-1004 ext. 250.
