Welcome to the Cowichan Valley Explorer

Interested in where your ancestors may have lived in the Cowichan Valley? Or just curious about previous ownership of the property you live on today? Our New App can help.

Using this App you can search by address, by name, or by year of purchase to locate historical ownership on properties in the Cowichan Valley.

The App opens with an Instructions page that we know you will want to skip through quickly, but trust us, it is essential to your having a good experience while exploring the map!  Please read it and then click the X in the upper right corner of the page to close that panel. Next, sign off on our disclaimer and you can begin your search.

We are continually adding new information so if you don’t find what you are looking for today, please check back, or send us a query which we will look into, and send a reply. Need App Help, use the above query link.

At this time, the App is not fully compatible with phones or tablets, but this work is in progress.

The instructions will help you to navigate the App without encountering problems. Click on this link and you will be taken to a map of the area to begin.

Good luck!


The Cobble Hill Historical Society meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm in the Youth Hall at 3565 Watson Ave, Cobble Hill.  All are welcome!
