Tourism Resiliency Program Ending January 31, 2022
We KNOW that the challenges have not gone away! We understand that without the past two years ~ and often more due to the Wildfires and Flooding ~ income, and the chance to conduct your businesses as usual, that you still face incredible blockades. The Tourism Resiliency Program has been a funded program. Please reach out to us and share your success stories, your ongoing challenges, and any information that you would like to share about this program – good or bad.
The Advisors have come to know you on a personal level, know your challenges and have directed businesses to the resources and information that would fit your individual needs and circumstances. We are still working with businesses on the grants and loans currently available. Please reach out if you need assistance.
Please reach out if your business or event needs assistance from our program advisors before January 31, 2022. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Supporting Businesses This Winter
In response to access disruptions to our region for our southern markets, we have updated and optimized our ‘Getting Here & Around’ page. The page contains traveller information on alternative means of transportation to our region via inter-city bus service from Surrey to Prince George through Adventure Charters, direct airline service through Pacific Coastal and Central Mountain Air, vehicle rentals, ferry service through BC Ferries, and more.
In addition, we have published our guide to Winter Responsible Travel to the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast and a Holiday Gift Guide to support e-commerce enabled businesses.
If you are experiencing cancellations and have questions on potential logistic alternatives for your guests, please reach out to our Emergency Program Manager, Mackenzie Moore.
