Election 2015: Tourism Announcements on the Campaign Trail

The 2015 Federal Election is at the halfway mark and Canadian tourism has been in the spotlight a number of times. 

We've seen some keen awareness from the federal parties on the issues facing tourism, and have been pleased to see that our U.S. marketing proposal Connecting Americacruise ports and hunting & angling tourism, as well as visas and Parks Canada are on the election agenda. 

Tourism was even mentioned as an important part of creating a sustainable economy. A strong tourism sector is paramount to a stronger Canada. #votetourism
