Key efforts in CCCTA Advancing Accessible Tourism

Bowron Lake, BC | Thomas Drasdauskis

As an industry, tourism’s job is to offer visitors the best possible experience. That is why it’s critical that operators of every kind know how to welcome and host visitors of all abilities.

Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association is focusing on a pair of initiatives to highlight the importance of accessibility in the region.

First, we are welcoming Alison Duddy back to the CCCTA team as the Accessibility Program Advisor. The CCCT Accessibility Program offers education to operators and stakeholders on how they can adapt and grow their accessible offerings. She will be working to help our tourism sector become more accessible, and help operators learn about universal design, grow their businesses to appeal to the ageing tourist population as well as those with disabilities.

Alison works with Spinal Injury BC so she is a wealth of knowledge and experience, and brings a large network of accessibility professionals. She is a great asset for the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast.

Her email is and she is happy to take inquiries and speak with stakeholders directly to learn more about how they can make their businesses as accessible as possible.

Second, Josh Dueck will be a keynote speaker at the 2022 Tourism Summit and AGM happening Nov. 3 in 100 Mile House. A silver medalist in Alpine skiing at the 2010 Winter Paralympics in Vancouver, and a gold and silver medalist at the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia, the Vernon resident was also the first person to perform a backflip on snow in a Sit Ski.

Josh is now an advocate for workplace safety and accessibility in sport, and we’re looking forward to his keynote. To learn more about him go to his website at
