Tourism Week in Canada is a grassroots initiative that brings attention to the economic opportunity available to Canada through travel and tourism and the public policy challenges preventing the sector from capitalizing on those opportunities. Tourism Week in Canada aligns tourism organizations, businesses, and other partners from across the country around a common vision: a tourism sector unencumbered by government policies and recognized for its contribution to the Canada economy.
