Travel Now. For Work, Life and Play!

May 29-June 4 is Tourism Week in Canada! The Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC)’s Tourism Week is a seven-day, coast-to-coast-to-coast event that recognizes Canada’s tourism economy, and the impact it has on every riding and community across the country.


This year’s theme is, ‘Travel Now. For work, life, and play,’ and aims to showcase Canada as the world’s premier tourism destination. Here are four ways to get involved!



1.    Light it Up


TIAC is challenging all destinations, landmarks, attractions, venues, and hotels to light up in TIAC green (colour hex code #8BC53F) from May 29-June 4 as part of its #GreenMeansGo social media campaign during Tourism Week to raise awareness of the industry’s economic, social, and cultural importance.


Remember to snap a few pics and share them on social media using the official Tourism Week hashtags of #TourismWeekCanada2022 and #GreenMeansGo. Don’t forget to tag in TIAC (Tourism Industry Association of Canada on Facebook and LinkedIn, and @tiac_aitc on Twitter and Instagram)!

 

 

2.    Change Your Pic


Tourism was the industry first hit, the hardest hit, and will be the last to recover. As the economic recovery gathers momentum, let’s make sure that the toll the pandemic has taken on the industry is not forgotten. Change your businesses social media profile pictures to the TIAC logo for the duration of Tourism Week (May 29-June 4), available for download on our website.


When people ask why, let them know that it’s to support tourism – the industry first hit, hardest hit, and the last to recover from the pandemic.

Canada is Open for Business

Tourism Week is an excellent time to recognize the role that business events play in Canada’s tourism sector, contributing $41 billion in economic impact, $24.3 billion to GDP and 229,000 high-value jobs. Agile, professionally managed events are a catalyst for business collaboration and future investment.


Business events are also the fast track to economic recovery. "It’s time to tell the world that Canada’s borders are open, we’re ready to welcome back business events and visitors to our diverse destinations, and that it’s safe to meet in Canada,” says Laura Pallotta, Chair, Meetings Mean Business Canada.

ITAC - Tourism Week Canada 2022

Indigenous tourism is reconciliation in action and Tourism Week is an excellent opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the many Indigenous tourism businesses from coast to coast to coast sharing authentic, memorable and enriching experiences. 


As the country continues to mourn the children lost to residential schools, and struggles to find ways to support reconciliation, Indigenous tourism plays a vital role in educating and sharing Indigenous culture. Experiencing Indigenous tourism firsthand is an important way for non-Indigenous Canadians to gain a new perspective. It helps them to connect to the lands, traditions and way of life of Indigenous Peoples and to better understand the history of Canada—while also having a positive impact on Indigenous economic growth.
