Shaping Tourism Advocacy Priorities

Tourism HR Canada and the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) today released a policy paper featuring insights and considerations to frame the upcoming National Policy Forum: Priorities for Tackling Labour Challenges in Tourism. The event will take place on November 30 as part of TIAC’s annual Tourism Congress.

The National Policy Forum aims to provide delegates the opportunity to help shape TIAC’s advocacy priorities over the coming year to address chronic and systemic labour challenges. Objectives will be outlined, the role of advocacy – including the key players – will be reviewed, and the issue will be presented and then discussed by an expert panel representing different sectors of the industry. And, lastly, a draft advocacy strategy framework will be presented for deliberation and reaction from delegates.

Tourism HR Canada President and CEO Philip Mondor is pleased to be part of the expert panel. Joining him are: Kevin Eshkawkogan, President & CEO, Indigenous Tourism Ontario; Susie Grynol, CEO, Hotel Association Canada; Rebecca Mackenzie, President and CEO, Culinary Tourism Alliance; and Darren Reeder, Executive Director, Banff & Lake Louise Hospitality Association. The forum will be facilitated by Huw Williams, President, Impact Public Affairs.
