We would like to announce that, as of May 31st, Charlie Sark has left the ITAC team to cook up new opportunities for the growing Indigenous culinary movement. Charlie’s vision, passion and innovation in Indigenous food and its role in driving culinary tourism brought so much to the ITAC table. Just in the last month ITAC has received coverage on CTV (YourMorning), ETalk, and the Marilyn Dennis Show. Charlie also attended Toronto’s Terroir Symposium on behalf of ITAC.

Although we’re sad Charlie won’t be working in the same capacity within our team, we’re happy to announce he is creating a new Indigenous food tourism business development organization – a natural fit for his skills. Charlie will continue to support the growth of Indigenous tourism across Canada while shining the spotlight on the many innovative Indigenous chefs culinary artists, and food producers who are gaining international attention. ITAC looks forward to continuing our working relationship with Charlie as he supports the growth of a sustainable Indigenous culinary industry, which will only benefit ITAC’s tourism experiences across the country.
