BC Tourism Week, May 29 – June 4

It’s BC Tourism Week! Taking place Sunday, May 29 to Saturday, June 4, Tourism Week is a seven-day celebration of tourism in Canada.

While the tourism industry was the first hit, the hardest hit, and will be the last to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, it remains vital to BC not only for its ability to generate economic activity, but also for showcasing our values as a province: resilience, peace, tolerance, and inclusivity.

  • Tourism is one of the largest industries globally, and brings incredible benefits not only for visitors, but also social, cultural, recreational and economic benefits for BC’s communities and residents.
  • Tourism improves the quality of life for all British Columbians. Think about the things we enjoy that would not be as viable without the tourism engine: museums and galleries, festivals and sports events, air/highway and coastal transportation, dining and wine touring, parks and recreational facilities, and many other benefits that make life so good here in BC.
  • Tourism opportunities exist in every corner of our province. It’s good for cities and it’s also good for rural communities.
  • Tourism plays a positive role in preserving, sharing, and celebrating the culture and heritage of our communities.
