History / Biographical
The Chinook Country Tourist Association was a stakeholder-based, not-for-profit organization that supported and inspired tourism by providing stakeholder, marketing, and visitor information services. It was associated with Travel Alberta, and the company was based in Lethbridge. The Chinook Country Tourist Association promoted tourism and travel throughout Southern Alberta. The Chinook Country Tourist Association produced a number of annual publications that are distributed throughout Southern Alberta, including “Alberta South” travel planners and guides, multiple brochures, and maps. They worked to promote the Southern Alberta area to tourists from all over the world. The CCTA had been in Lethbridge for 50 years and operated one of the few year-round visitor centres in Southern Alberta. The Association’s executive director Nikolaus Wyslouzil announced that in March 2019, the Chinook Country Tourist Association would dissolve and cease all operations in Lethbridge.

History / Biographical
The association was a primary promoter for Lethbridge and Southern Alberta, previously known as the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta. The organization provided information to the travelling public and residents and operated one of the few year-round visitor centres in the region. The CCTA’s visitor centre was built in 1979 at the corner of Mayor Magrath Drive and Scenic Drive South, the confluence of Highways 4 & 5. In 1985, the facility added more parking space, a playground, picnic shelter, washrooms and outdoor interpretative panels. In 1995 the CCTA added office space and souvenir retail area. In 2019 the CCTA was dissolved following the loss of city funding and inability ot establish other sources of revenue. The successor, Tourism Lethbridge, was tasked with encouraging conventions, meeting and sporting events as well promoting area attractions.
