Vancouver, Coast & Mountains Tourism Resiliency Program

Destination BC has launched the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains (VCM) Tourism Resiliency Program to provide tourism businesses in the region with meaningful, one-on-one support to navigate government resources and expert advice and work towards eventual recovery.

The VCM Tourism Resiliency Program includes two components:

1. Tourism businesses will be paired with a Program Advisor who will provide guidance through their journey to long-term resiliency. Through a needs assessment by phone, Program Advisors will facilitate customized support for each business that includes navigating available federal and provincial aid and access to Program Experts in Human Resources.

2. A digital resource hub featuring webinars, information bulletins, and additional resources specific to the needs of BC’s tourism businesses.

We encourage you to visit https://tourismresiliency.ca/vcmtrp/ to learn more and register for the program if your business requires support navigating the resources available.

The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region, managed by Destination BC, is committed to supporting the survival of all tourism businesses in BC and is working with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture, and tourism partners to deliver the BC Tourism Resiliency Program.
