Economic Development and Tourism Minister Heath MacDonald said, “Vision 2021 is a very powerful document that we can act on since the industry was so involved in its creation.”In the coming days, the province will meet with operators and organizations to determine how to act on the strategy and marketing and product development. An awards ceremony honoring the best players in the tourism industry was held at the Red Shores Racetrack and Casino in Charlottetown.

 

10 awards were handed out for recognizing those who show a high degree of professionalism and support in the industry. Tourism is extremely important to the provincial economy and it provides over 7,700 full time equivalent jobs for Islanders contributing 6.4% of total GDP.
