THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWN OF COCHRANE
Municipal Accommodation Tax and Cochrane Tourism Association Public and Stakeholders Consultation: Presentation & Input Session
Municipal Accommodation Tax and Cochrane Tourism Association
Public and Stakeholders Consultation
Presentation and Input Session #2
When: Wednesday June 5, 2019 – 7 pm
Where: Commando Park Pavilion
The Town of Cochrane continues to explore the implementation of a Municipal Accommodation Tax. The tax would be charged and collected by accommodation providers within the municipality (hotels – for example) and the tax is paid by accommodation users (hotel customers – for example). At least 50% of the revenues generated from this tax must be paid to eligible tourism entities and be used to promote tourism.
The session will provide a forum for education and discussion on the changes being proposed as a result of feedback obtained at the original Consultation Session held in 2018, current term Council discussions and new information. A key change to the original proposal is to form a Cochrane Tourism Association.
