Ladysmith Community Response Network

Ladysmith is found on Vancouver Island’s east coast in the Cowichan Valley District. Originally called Oyster Harbour, the town’s name was later changed by founder James Dunsmuir in honour of the liberation of a town by the same name during the Second Boer War. Ladysmith’s population is made up of over 27% seniors 65+, and is home to just over 8,500 residents. Its notable industries are agriculture, forestry and tourism.
