Impact Sustainability Travel & Tourism

Conference
Jan 20 2019 - 8:00am to Jan 23 2019 - 5:00pm

Join tourism peers and stakeholders in Victoria, BC this winter for the second annual, national discussion on the industry’s impact on Canada’s economic, social, environmental and cultural fabric. IMPACT is driven by a desire to align all segments within the Canadian tourism industry, as well as stakeholders throughout our communities touched by tourism, behind a collaborative vision to achieve economic, social and environmental sustainability. IMPACT's focus will be on innovation and defining the legacy we want to create together as leaders within and in support of the tourism and travel industry, aligned with a modern and progressive Canada.

If you work in tourism, design policies which affect tourism, teach tourism, care about tourism’s positive or negative impacts on communities and Canadians, and see the positive, sustainable growth of tourism in Canada as a key economic driver – IMPACT is for you.
