Youbou is a community located on the north shore of Cowichan Lake, west of Duncan and a 15-minute (13 km) drive west of the community of Lake Cowichan, Canada. The former mill town on Vancouver Island provides a public beach and extensive recreational opportunities, including fishing, boating, and hiking.

Youbou gets its name from two employees of the Empire Lumber Company which operated the first sawmill here. Mr. Yount was the general manager and Mr. Bouton was the president.

Youbou is also famous for having the last hand-set Bowling alley in North America.
