Welcome to Duncan, the heart of the Cowichan Region. Our lovely city can be found just off
the Trans Canada Highway, about half-way between Victoria and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.
Our downtown features a number of heritage and vintage buildings, and a large array of small,
exquisite shops and restaurants catering to all tastes. Enjoy the cultural comings and goings
in our busy new City Square - part of our exciting revitalization plan – or tour the world's
largest collection of outdoor totems.
Duncan is a very walkable, people-friendly community that invites you to come, stay a while
and enjoy the ambience.
