FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northern BC Tourism Association (NBCTA) has announced funding for 13 projects under the provincial catalyst funding.

The provincial catalyst funding was established to help with the social and economic impacts of mill closures in 2019.

Locally, Tourism Fort St. John Professional Services and Support was awarded a $30,000 grant to help with a business plan for the newly-formed independent society.  This plan will help identify priorities and sustainable funding opportunities, helping the society move forward as a sustainable Destination Management Organization (DMO).

The District of Taylor was also awarded $10,000, which will help upgrade the wheelchair ramp at the Taylor Visitor Centre.

The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality Gotta Go Partnership Group was awarded $20,000 to help with the development of signage at the first two Gotta Go Rest Stops along the Alaska Highway.

NBCTA is a non-profit that works to develop, support, and sustain the tourism sector in Northern BC. It is one of five regional destination management organizations in the province.
