FirstVoices Keyboards allows Indigenous speakers of more than 100 languages to use their mobile devices to write emails, send text messages and create other documents in their own languages using Indigenous language keyboards.

  2. After years of the Sunfest team searching for a new and permanent home for their festival, they have just received the support of the Cowichan Valley Regional District to move forward with the Laketown Ranch Music and Recreation Park near Cowichan Lake! This amphitheatre hopes to draw much more talent to the island. Click here for more info.
