The BC Tourism Resiliency Network is a long-term resiliency program providing BC tourism businesses with meaningful, one-on-one support to navigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, adapt and work towards eventual recovery.
Working together across the province, the BC Regional Tourism Secretariat is leading the BC Tourism Resiliency Network. Each program will be delivered in their respective regions by Tourism Vancouver Island, Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association, Kootenay Rockies Tourism Association, Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association and Northern BC Tourism Association. Vancouver, Coast & Mountains is managed by Destination BC.
The Province of British Columbia is committed to supporting the survival of BC’s tourism businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The BC Tourism Resiliency Network is funded in part by Western Economic Diversification and Island Coastal Economic Trust and is supported in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
