The Indigenous Tourism Best Practices Mission held on Wendake – Nionwentsïo – Huron-Wendat Territory (Wendake, Quebec) took place from June 13-15, 2018. The purpose of the mission was to showcase well developed Indigenous tourism products and experiences that can act as a catalyst for further discussion on how participants can work together to grow Indigenous tourism offerings in Atlantic Canada.
This mission was focused around a consultative approach for a working/advisory group in Atlantic Canada to move forward on Pan-Atlantic Indigenous programming. Working with government and Indigenous representatives, the days were broken into experiences and facilitated discussions around Indigenous development in Atlantic Canada.
The Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada team, along with Keith Henry, President & CEO, led participants through a series of experiences and discussions focused on developing and growing Indigenous tourism experiences.
