About Cochrane Tourism
Cochrane Tourism Association (CTA) is the Destination Management Organization (DMO) for Cochrane Alberta and surrounding areas. In partnership with the town of Cochrane, CTA is the lead organization that implements the joint Tourism Strategy. At arm’s length from the municipality, we operate through a Partnership Program focused on promoting the places, services, products, and attractions in Cochrane, the Bow Valley, and along the Cowboy Trail.
The work by CTA over the past 5 years on the tourism strategy has garnered interest from Travel Alberta as an emerging destination. The area Cochrane – Sundre – Rocky Mountain House is one of the next Tourism Development Zones in the province. CTA is the lead organization working with the province on a Regional Destination Development Plan and feasibility studies to fund major projects within the zone. This will bring tourism sector development to the region growing and strengthening the visitor economy.
