Outcomes of NL Indigenous Tourism Working Group Strategic Session


The NL Indigenous Tourism Working Group has set out to create a 5-Year Indigenous Tourism Strategy in order to mobilize a Provincial Indigenous Tourism Association that will strengthen and support the development and growth of the Indigenous tourism industry in Newfoundland and Labrador.

On June 18, 2019, the Working Group met in Goose Bay, Labrador rolling up their sleeves to plan out the critical elements in establishing Newfoundland and Labrador’s Indigenous Tourism Association (NLITA). The team covered everything from governance and operational aspirations to people, process and budget. It was an intense day with outstanding results, all produced and powered by the group’s knowledge of their communities and passion for preserving culture through tourism. One of the motivating factors for the team throughout the day was the commitment to champion grassroots tourism, where communities and people will be at the heart and forefront of tourism development in the province. The day concluded with a clear and concise plan on how to mobilize NLITA.

In support of establishing NLITA’s 5-Year Strategy, they want to hear the voices of all Indigenous tourism stakeholders throughout the province, including Indigenous community members, operators and partners. Be part of NLITA’s grassroots movement and have your voice heard by sharing your thoughts with a 15-minute phone interview and/or by taking a 10-minute online survey, which could give you a chance to win a $250 prepaid Visa gift card!
