Quebec Seduced by Canmore

La Petite Seduction TV Show

The marketing partnership of the Conseil de développement économique de l’Alberta (or CDÉA), Tourism Canmore Kananaskis, Town of Canmore, l’Association canadienne-française de l’Alberta (Canmore Chapter) and the Conseil scolaire FrancoSud introduced Canmore to French television viewers by seducing them! The goal of the popular Quebec TV program "La Petite Seduction" is to have the show’s celebrity guest, Frédérick De Granpré, fall in love with a community. Over 500 volunteers in Canmore easily did that with their activities.
It is estimated that one million viewers saw the episode in July 2014. Since then, visitors to have increased 192% and requests for the francophone travel guide increased 476%.
