Tourism HR Canada would like to extend its thanks to the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, and the Government of Canada on their appointment of Marsha Walden as President and CEO of Destination Canada.

The Tourism HR Canada team offers its sincere congratulations to Marsha on her new role leading Canada’s national tourism marketing organization. Tourism HR Canada is eager to build on its longstanding relationship with Destination Canada and support the agency as the tourism community navigates the challenges brought about by the current global pandemic.

“I am excited by today’s announcement and warmly wish Marsha the best in this well-deserved appointment,” stated Philip Mondor, President and CEO of Tourism HR Canada. “Marsha brings a wealth of experience and a passion for the tourism sector, as demonstrated through her successes during her recent tenure as President and CEO of Destination British Columbia.
