Cariboo Chilcotin Coast MRDT Program

Stakeholder survey

The Municipal and Regional District Tax (MRDT) was introduced in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast in May 2018 to provide funding for local and tourism marketing, programs and projects. The MRDT is applied to sales of short term accommodation provided in select areas of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast and jointly administered by the Ministry of Finance; the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture; and Destination British Columbia (DBC).

We are pleased to congratulate the following tourism industry representatives for the successful nomination to represent their communities and tourism industry on the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast MRDT Marketing Committee:

5 Year Strategic Plan

This Tourism Plan has been developed through significant industry stakeholder consultation and engagement over a three-month period of October – December 2013, a six-month period between October 2015 and March 2016, and review and update May 2017 including:

  • Meetings at the annual Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association Summit and AGM in Shearwater, Denny Island.
  • Input from the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association Board of Directors.
  • Community meetings in Williams Lake, Quesnel, Lillooet, Clinton and 100 Mile House.
  • Extensive outreach and discussions with individual tourism businesses and stakeholders throughout the region (including Bella Coola and West Chilcotin).
  • A survey distributed to all stakeholders in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association newsletter list (approximately 467) as well as identified PST/MRDT-eligible accommodations within the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region (approximately 150).
  • Input from Destination BC.

In total over 150 people participated in one or more of the above. This plan and the goals, objectives, strategies and actions described below are based on input from these sessions as well as from a situation analysis review, and One Year Tactical Plan (2018) enclosed within. 

This plan is intended to be a working document for the industry to embrace and evolve, in order to provide guidance to the newly formed MRDT Marketing Committee.
