Duncan

The city is about 45 kilometres from both Victoria to the south and Nanaimo to the north.

Although the City of Duncan has a population of just under 5,000, it serves the Cowichan Valley which has a population of approximately 84,000, many of whom live in North Cowichan and Cowichan Tribes. This gives Duncan a much larger perceived “greater” population than that contained within the city limits.

The City of Duncan takes great pride in its parks. Green spaces promote healthy living and a sense of place and community as people walk, play, and attend events.
