About Us-The Chapel Society

The Fairbridge Chapel Heritage Society was established in October 1987. Concerned citizens in the community petitioned the Cowichan Valley Regional District to allow our society to assume responsibility for the restoration, preservation, on-going upgrading and maintenance plus administration of this important historic site.

Through the dogged work of this small committee, the Regional District decided that it would be in the interest of everyone if the Fairbridge Chapel Heritage Society (Chapel Society for short) took over the administrative duties to manage the site which included the Chapel, the Cowichan Public School and the grounds. This would be a huge undertaking, but the Board of Directors, along with support from the wider community as well as the valued assistance from the Fairbridge Canada Association, took on as a worthwhile challenge thus maintaining it as a functioning heritage site, and community asset.
