Welcome to my website. I am Doug Routley and I represent the beautiful constituency of Nanaimo-North Cowichan. From our beautiful mountains, rivers and lakes to our pastoral Gulf Islands, natural beaches and rugged shorelines, we enjoy one of the most spectacular natural environments on the globe. We have a long history of forestry, mining and artistic excellence. We are a favourite destination of tourists from around the world. But, even in the midst of such natural wealth and beauty, we still face challenges. Many struggle to meet the increasingly daunting costs of living and many kinds of development challenge our precious environment and resources. It is the protection of these great assets and pursuit of fairness in our communities that my office serves. Whether to celebrate and promote our community or to seek help in a struggle with the challenges of our lives, please view my office as a welcoming port of call. I look forward to serving you.

The Nanaimo~North Cowichan Community Offices will be closed December 25th through January 2nd. The offices will re-open on January 3rd. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have an emergency, please call Service BC at 1.800.663.7867 and they will connect you with the appropriate government department toll free.


Thank you,

Doug Routley, MLA & Staff
