TORONTO — The Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) has kicked off its 2023 series of Tourism Town Halls, taking place across Canada from January to April.

The industry-wide events are designed to reach all tourism industry stakeholders, providing an opportunity to meet with TIAC and its partners to better understand efforts on national and local tourism issues, and offering a forum for open dialogue, discussion and debate.

Each Town Hall is a full-day event that includes a morning session focused on innovation and sustainable best-practices. Following a complimentary lunch, the session provides tourism stakeholders the chance to provide firsthand input on issues affecting their business. 

Attendees will also get an overview of plans to grow Canada’s visitor economy, including all verticals from leisure/business travel, travel trade, meetings and conventions, and sports tourism.

Following the inaugural event in Saskatoon on Jan. 19, Town Halls will take place on the following dates:

  • January 27, British Columbia
  • February 1, Ontario
  • February 21, Nova Scotia
  • February 22, Quebec

  • March 15, Yukon
  • March 17, Nunavut
  • March 21, Newfoundland and Labrador
  • March 30, Prince Edward Island
  • April 4, Northwest Territories

“We are encouraging and welcoming businesses and organizations in all sectors of the tourism economy to participate in our Town Halls this year,” said Beth Potter, President and CEO of TIAC. “As we strive to rebuild the industry post-pandemic, the time to come together to discuss the challenges we continue to face and find solutions is now.”
