Research conducted by the Conference Board of Canada will Assess the sector’s current condition and potential for recovery and growth

COAST SALISH TERRITORY (Vancouver, BC) – In partnership with the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC), The Conference Board of Canada is conducting a research survey to assess the economic impacts of COVID-19 on Indigenous tourism businesses in Canada and understand the sector’s current condition and potential for recovery and growth.

This survey is seeking input from all Indigenous organizations, artists, and businesses that provide cultural experiences, events, goods and/or services to tourists. If this is you, ITAC needs your insights to make the strongest case possible for improved support to help the Indigenous tourism sector recover and grow beyond the COVID-19 disaster. This survey asks questions about the state of respondents’ business operations and asks respondents to estimate COVID-19’s business impact on their operations in 2021 and beyond.

The information provided will be kept strictly confidential and respondents’ identity will be kept anonymous. Survey responses will only be used as part of provincial/territorial and national profiles of the Indigenous tourism sector. The deadline for the Conference Board of Canada survey is extended until May 28, 2021, and will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
