Thompson Okanagan Tourism (TOTA), with funding and support from Destination BC (DBC), hired a consulting group to prepare the Thompson Okanagan Regional Rail Trails Tourism Strategy. This strategy, completed in March of 2016 was developed with a focus on the Kettle Valley and Columbia Western Rail Trail route (the Trans Canada Trail section in the TOTA Region); however it has broader implications for all of the region’s rail trails. Within the strategy 59 recommendations were made with several noted as critical for implementation in year one.
In September 2017 TOTA launched the KVR Rail Trail web portal to support the information search for visitors to understand the trail system and how and where to access the trail. The web portal is promoted through the Route 97 campaigns.https://totabc.org/programs/regional-rail-trails/
