Destination BC Releases New Toolkit
While we’re encouraging our visitors to dream now and explore BC later, one way to stay top of mind and maintain engagement with your audience is by creating and sharing a virtual experience through your social media channels. Destination BC has created a toolkit to help you bring the sights and sounds of your experience, attraction, or destination to visitors, so they can enjoy what you have to offer from the comforts of their homes.

COVID-19 Tourism Impact Report
With the support of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture the British Columbia Hotel Association, The BC Destination Marketing Organization Association and the B.C. Regional Tourism organizations are working together to collect and collate data on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on B.C. tourism businesses. This data is and will continue to inform response and recovery measures.
Two reports are created weekly – the first: COVID19-TourismImpactReport-April12 includes data gathered from all sectors of the tourism industry, and the second: COVID19-AccommodationsImpactReport-April12 is the accommodation subset.
