Tourism Chilliwack was established in 1998 as part of the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO). The organization was created to forge a partnership between the City of Chilliwack and the tourism industry, to promote growth and diversification and to increase the economic impact of tourism. In 2006, Tourism Chilliwack became incorporated, with the City of Chilliwack as its sole shareholder. We are a non-traditional Destination Marketing Organization (DMO), which has a business function but also conforms to governance policies and undertakes strategic planning.
