Indigenous and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett says just over $3 million will be spent for the implementation of a five-year national strategy to support and promote both new and existing Indigenous tourism businesses, enhance product and market readiness, increase the visibility of the Indigenous tourism industry, and facilitate the sharing of best practices within and between regions.

“From the Haida Nation, to Wendake, to Waycobah First Nations, Indigenous communities are growing dynamic tourism initiatives and welcoming Canadian and international tourists alike to their traditional territories,” Bennett said in a news release.
