Thursday, July 6, 2023


Through the Federal Tourism Growth Strategy, the federal government is injecting millions of dollars into the Maritime financial system.

Randy Boissonnault, Tourism Minister, Canada, on Wednesday, talked about the strategy in Peggys Cove, N.S.

Boissonnault explained that he wants the tourism of Canada to grow by 40 per cent in the coming seven years.

For regional development agencies all over the country, over $100 million in federal money has been allocated comprising those located in the Maritimes that help small as well as medium-sized businesses in tourism.

Boissonnault said that they are about to spend in tourism related assets and they are all set to hold leisure and the outdoor activities close. They are going to collaborate to develop indigenous tourism and they are going to pull greater number of international events.

According to Eleanor McCain, the tourism operator, in tourism, support and subsequent growth can kick-start expansion in other Maritime sectors.

McCain said that if they invest in Canada tourism, it will have a wave like impact all through the region, and other industries.

Even with the wet weather, along the Halifax waterfront, the season of tourism is off to a strong start.

People just want to be out on the water, mainly when they are visiting from places that are not water bounded, said Giacomo Bruno, Ambassatours marketing manager, who added there are areas to advance,
including winter tourism.
