How it works!

The Build Back Tourism program, is a seasonal opportunity for staff and volunteers actively working at the attractions, hotels and partner locations  from May 1 - September 30, 2021.

This is your opportunity to support your tourism community and to help build it back this summer.

Build Back Tourism partners have gone to great lengths to ensure that they offer experiences and services that comply with current Provincial Health Orders, and have the required COVID-19 Safety Plan and protocols in place.

We need our friends, family and visitors to feel confident about returning to our local attractions, staying at our hotels and supporting local businesses when they explore our neighbourhoods, nearby communities and when they shop in person.

Your Ticket offers you free admissions, special rates, and unique opportunities to explore and discover your local community.

So, get out there, have fun, stay safe and ensure you are following current Provincial Health Orders and recommendations!
