February 2019 - Time to Staff Up for Spring and Summer!

With strong tourism performance on all fronts and a forecast of a vibrant tourist year, staff shortages will be at critical levels this season. Consider attending or participating in the Work BC Job Fair, April 4th, 1-4 pm at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. For booth information, call Peter McGee at 250-714-0085.

  • It’s the last few days to register for the BC Hospitality Summit! Hosted by the BC Hotel Association and ABLE BC, the BC Hospitality Summit will take place in Kelowna on April 8th and 9th. Visit the website www.bchospitalitysummit.com for more information on the program, BC Hospitality Awards and other conference events.
  • Starting April 1st, staff from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and the Royal BC Museum will be engaging with British Columbians to gather ideas for a more modern provincial museum. The current building no longer meets modern accessibility and seismic standards and the collection has outgrown its space. They look forward to hearing from people from all over B.C. Please visit this website to learn more about how to share your feedback.
  • The federal budget, released on March 20th, illustrates a renewed focus on the tourism industry as an economic driver for Canada. The budget not only maintains Destination Canada’s budget of $95 million, but it also provides an extra $58.2 million over two years for regional development agencies to develop new tourism experiences. Details still to come.
