Who approves road names?

The Ministry of Transportation, Highways and Infrastructure approves road names within the Cowichan Valley Regional District. As part of the subdivision application procedure, the developer will be asked to provide 3+ road names that will be checked against the current road inventory for uniqueness. If the road name exists within the CVRD or a surrounding jurisdiction, the road name will be denied and the developer will have to submit other options.
