Nanaimo’s recently launched Tourism Ambassador Program will be a positive addition to the community’s tourism services. The Program will complement the services of the Visitor Centre and involve deploying a pool of friendly volunteers to key tourism areas to welcome visitors and provide them with information. Anything that contributes to the quality of the visitor experience will help generate positive word-of-mouth promotion which is so important in today’s competitive tourism market.
