Glenora is unusual in a number of ways, not the least being that there are two communities by that name in British Columbia. Our Glenora is four minutes southwest of Duncan in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, and is a Block Watch community. The word Glenora is of Scottish origin and means "golden valley".

GLENORA COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
Glenora Community Association manages Glenora Hall, which is one of two central mustering-points for the community and the site of numerous social events throughout the year. It was built in 1924 on property donated by Mary Waldon. The hall has been extensively rebuilt and upgraded under the hand and guidance of Frank McCorkell. It is located at 3660 Glenora Road, Duncan, B.C., V9L 6S3. The phone number is (250) 746-6741.
About two-thirds of Glenora is devoted to vineyards and farming; the other third supports rural and residential lifestyles. There are about 250 homes in Glenora, several of which are also businesses. A trip through the area may include views of llamas, alpacas, emus, ostriches and wild peacocks. Palates can also be treated to wine-tasting tours of Glenora's wineries and vineyards. Other places of interest include a tree nursery and fuscia-basket outlet, bed-and-breakfasts, a blueberry farm, excellent restaurants, a general store, weavery outlet and dairy farms. There is even a flying club and an ultralight business just outside of Glenora. As well, our community is home to many fine artists and artisans.To learn more about this delightful area, or for hall rentals, just click on the buttons located at the top of each page. Thank you for stopping by. We hope to see you soon in person.
