Rob Conway from the Municipality of North Cowichan will be the guest speaker

The Chemainus Residents Association is holding its annual general meeting via Zoom on Wednesday, Jan. 13 at 7 p.m.

People may not be able to gather in person due to COVID-19, but interaction within the community is just as important as ever.

“You are welcome to join in and hear our special guest, Rob Conway, from the Municipality talk about planning in our lovely little town,” noted CRA chair Lia Versaevel.

Conway is North Cowichan’s director of planning and building.

The meeting will also include a quick review of the past year and the selection of board members for the year ahead.

The Chemainus Residents Association attends North Cowichan council meetings and tracks issues of concern to Chemainus residents. It also organizes all-candidates meetings during municipal, provincial and federal elections.

The CRA keeps its ear to the ground and an eye out for future developments.

Visit for more details.

A registration form can be found there for anyone who wants to attend the AGM.

Volunteers and board members are also always welcome. To nominate someone or to join the board, you can check the provided box and someone will contact you.

The website also features a video giving some background about the CRA and its role in the community in conversation with vice chair Bernie Jones.
