TIAC's 2019 Tourism Town Hall series is an event partnership between the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, Destination Canada and local industry partners. Tourism Town Halls provide an opportunity to engage small and medium-sized business owner operators across Canada to better understand efforts being made on national tourism issues.
