Get Ready for the Canadian LGBT+ Tourism Opportunity

Results from new national research indicate that 90% of Canadian LGBT+ travellers intend to travel domestically this year amidst international travel uncertainty. This represents a $12 billion leisure travel opportunity for a tourism sector devastated by COVID-19.

Is your business market-ready? Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce and Tourism HR Canada are eager to help you welcome LGBT+ travellers to your region! National LGBT+ Tourism Project programming is available for free for a limited time thanks to funding from the Government of Canada.

We are pleased to now share two engaging digital workshops: we continue to offer Navigating LGBT+ Diversity and Inclusion in the Tourism Industry and are excited to launch our LGBT+ Travel Market-Ready Seminars. Register today for one or both!

Navigating LGBT+ Diversity and Inclusion in the Tourism Industry

Included in this workshop is a self-paced online course to first get you up to speed on the many different LGBT+ communities. Once you also attend the four-hour web-based workshop, you’ll leave with a certificate acknowledging your participation and action items to transform your workplace into an LGBT+ safe space. Registration is available now for dates through November and December.

LGBT+ Travel Market-Ready Seminars

This two-hour webinar will share exclusive LGBT+ travel market info and case studies of best practices from around the world, as well as exposing you to a number of custom LGBT+ products to help inspire your own successful LGBT+ tourism welcoming strategy. Registration is available now for dates through to the end of January. 

Sharing is Caring

To help you spread the word amongst your networks, we’ve created a toolkit with drafted social posts and copy for your newsletter, plus a digital poster. If you share on social, we’ll amplify your organization on our social media channels.

Please reach out to tourismcommunications@cglcc.ca if you have any questions or want to learn more about our custom workshops.
