VICTORIA — Major streets in downtown Duncan will soon be bilingual, according to the Downtown Duncan Business Improvement Area (BIA).

Seven streets near the downtown core will soon feature English and Hul’q’umi’num names. Hul’q’umi’num is the traditional language of the area’s local Indigenous community, Cowichan Tribes.

The municipality says that seven street names will be changed to be bilingual. Traffic signs will not be affected by the initiative.

The Downtown Duncan BIA will also be handing out signs that read “Tth’ihwum ‘i mi nuwilum. Huy ch q’u,” which translate to, “Please come in. Thank you,” for local businesses to hang in their stores.
