Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada’s 225,000 tourism businesses generated $105 billion in revenue and employed 1.8 million Canadians. But the pandemic devastated our industry. While some Canadian sectors have started to recover, Canada’s tourism economy remains in crisis. We need sector-specific government support to rebuild.
Over the past year, the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) has been advocating tirelessly for tourism stakeholders from coast to coast to coast. TIAC’s 2021 Tourism Recovery Plan outlines how to support business solvency, champion safety, and keep Canada globally competitive during the pandemic—and beyond.
