TOTA AGM & Summit
Register Now!

We are proud to announce that this year’s Annual General Meeting & Summit’s theme is “Drive for Sustainability,” and we hope you can join us this year! Located on traditional Syilx territory, Spirit Ridge is devoted to promoting inclusion, reconciliation, and community building. A world-class facility that features a desert winery, sensitive landscape, and a coveted cultural centre – the setting embraces our vision for a sustainable future for all.

Joining us as a speaker this year is Sonja Gaudet, Canadian Paralympian and Spinal Cord Injury BC representative. Using the “power of sport” as rehabilitation after her injury, she has lived a full and meaningful life as a mother, wife, athlete and motivational speaker. She has recently retired from competition and was presented with a Canadian stamp in her honour. For thirteen years, she has had the privilege of representing Canada around the world as a Paralympic athlete, winning three Paralympic Gold Medals and three World Championships in the sport of Wheelchair Curling.

Sonja has a keen interest in accessibility issues, and she lends her knowledge and experience to creating recreational opportunities for people with mobility challenges. She is excited for the partnership between SCI BC and TOTA, promoting the AccessBC project and the concept of Universal Design within the tourism industry in the Thompson Okanagan Region.

A welcome reception will be hosted by Destination Osoyoos on November 13th at Baldy Mountain Ski Resort. Due to limited seats, we ask that you RSVP for the event. Winter attire will be required for this fun Mexican-themed evening with entertainment provided by Andrew Johns.
