Applications open for tourism in British Columbia

Tuesday, November 21, 2023



British Columbia is home to breath-taking natural attractions and unique arts and culture experiences.

Tourism is important to the province’s economy and its long-term prosperity.

It generates economic benefits in every region of B.C. in small communities in major centres, in rural and remote areas and in indigenous communities.

Today, the Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan announced that they will accept applications for the Tourism Growth Program in British Columbia.

He is the Minister of Emergency Preparedness and Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada (PacifiCan),

Through this $108 million national program, the Government of Canada is investing $14 million in British Columbia to help small and medium-sized businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and communities, including indigenous communities, develop local tourism attractions and experiences that make Canada a destination of choice.

Through the Tourism Growth Program, PacifiCan will partner with small- and medium-sized tourism businesses and organizations that are growing and have ambitious plans for the future.

In particular, the Tourism Growth Program in B.C. will support projects that align with existing tourism strategies and create lasting impact in communities across the province.

These investments will create jobs that British Columbians can rely on, draw even more visitors to B.C.’s world-class attractions and provide economic benefits for years to come.
