TIAC is pleased to announce details of the inaugural Tourism Town Hall series, a collection of open meetings between TIAC, the Canadian Tourism Commission and grassroots tourism stakeholders.
These FREE interactive sessions are intended to provide you with unparalleled insight on how TIAC and the CTC are working to grow the visitor economy. The open forum also provides a unique opportunity for you to share your ideas on how we can make Canada’s tourism industry more competitive.

The recent Niagara Falls session drew more than 70 participants, including tourism and hospitality business operators, tourism marketers, travel industry employees, government stakeholders, and local media.
