#BCTourismCounts: Tourism Week 2021
Tourism Week is a seven-day coast to coast to coast event to recognize Canada’s tourism economy, and the impact it has on every community across the country, including those right here in BC. This year, to recognize and support the resilience of BC’s tourism industry through this unprecedented time, we are joining TIAC’s pledge, but with a BC focus, and asking all British Columbians to take the 2021 Tourism Pledge To Travel In BC, once restrictions are lifted.
Download the “I Pledge to Travel in BC” badge and make it your profile picture on social media, use it in your email signature, and help spread the word that #BCTourismCounts!
Tourism makes significant contributions to our economy, and it enriches our lives. Tourism supports a greater diversity of amenities, such as museums and galleries, festival and sports events, transportation, dining and wine touring, parks and recreational facilities, and many other benefits that make life so good here in BC. When people stop travelling, the benefits of tourism stop, too. Most tourism businesses buy goods locally, hire locally, and retain their profits locally.
