The Value of Tourism

The tourism industry in the Vancouver Island Region is a vast and interwoven network of tourism businesses, industry organizations, and government agencies all working together to grow and sustain a dynamic industry. Tourism is everyone's business and everyone can play their part by applying knowledge, expertise and resources to achieve the best outcomes for a flourishing industry and visitor economy. There are many ways to promote and support the industry to ensure its continued vitality and success.

Lunch and Learns are open to current members and those considering joining the group.
