The Vancouver Island Coastal Tourism Resiliency Program provides Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands tourism businesses with meaningful, hands-on guidance and support to navigate the immediate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, adapt and work towards long-term resiliency.

This project is funded in part by Island Coastal Economic Trust.
