On July 18, the Honorable Mélanie Joly was appointed as the new Minister of Tourism, Official Languages & La Francophonie.
TIAC congratulates Minister Joly and also wishes to thank outgoing Minister of Small Business and Tourism, the Honorable Bardish Chagger, who remains Government House Leader, for championing and supporting tourism since her appointment in 2015.
As the tourism sector continues to grow, we know that a globally competitive tourism industry requires policies and measures that foster growth. As such, we continue to advocate for progressive policies addressing our members’ priorities and in particular; labour, access, cost competitiveness and increased marketing funding for tourism. This is our continued commitment to our members and we look forward to working with Minister Joly on positively advancing these issues.
TIAC, its Board of Directors and its members wish to thank Minister Chagger for her work with us as a great partner and champion for Canadian tourism.
