What We Can Do For You!

TOTA’s focus on industry and community development will assist in strengthening the tourism industry throughout the region. Key areas of action will include professional development, advisory services, building awareness of trends, aligning communities with Destination BC programs such as the Community Tourism Foundations and Community Tourism Opportunities programs, and working directly with communities and sectors to encourage innovative growth strategies.

Consider us your main resource when it comes to community tourism planning and development.

Community Tourism stakeholders and those eligible for its programming include: community tourism alliances, business associations, Chambers of Commerce, Community Futures Development Corporation, Destination marketing and or management organizations, Economic Development Officers, First Nations, local and regional Government, Tourism Advisory Committees and Visitor Centres.
