Link to the SSRA application for the Municipal & Regional District Tax to the Province of British Columbia.

The MRDT is a 3% tax applied to sales of short-term accommodation. The collection of MRDT is to provide funding for local tourism marketing, programs, and projects. The tax is paid by visitors and intended to help grow Silver Star revenues, visitation, and jobs, and amplify Silver Star’s tourism marketing efforts in an increasingly competitive marketplace. The SSRA successfully applied for MRDT in 2021 for the Silver Star Resort Lands area.

The SSRA was formally established by the Province February 25, 2020. Incorporation of the SSRA was completed effective April 2, 2020 as required by the Societies Act.
