Resort Municipality Tax Transfer Program
This program transfers, by agreements with Resort Bodies, between 1% and 4% of the 8% Provincial Hotel Room Tax (HRT) generated within a Resort Area to the designated Resort Body for the development of their tourism economies. The goal is to finance new or improved resort infrastructure and services to increase the number of visitors to these resort regions, whether their visitor experience is tied to mountain, ocean or lake-front activities.
I'll be meeting with District of Tofino staff today to clarify what projects are eligible for Resort Community funding.
I hope to have a report posted later today......
