On Tuesday, July 12, 2021, the Federal Government of Canada announced an investment of a minimum of $50M from the Tourism Relief Fund (TRF) to be invested in Indigenous tourism projects. Keith Henry, President and CEO of the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC), hosted this webinar (below) to discuss what this means for Indigenous tourism businesses, Indigenous tourism provincial/territorial partners and ITAC.
“The Government of Canada demonstrated their commitment to the importance of investing in Indigenous tourism in Canada,” said Keith Henry, president and CEO of the ITAC. “This is a very significant direct commitment for Indigenous tourism businesses, Indigenous Tourism Provincial/Territorial Partners and the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada. We are working out the two-year implementation details and will be moving quickly to support our Indigenous tourism industry recover and rebuild.”
This webinar was hosted on Henry’s personal Facebook Live Page on Thursday, July 22, 2021, @ 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT and is now available to view below.
