Growing Indigenous tourism in Alberta
28 May 2021
As part of Budget 2021, government is providing funding over the next three years to Indigenous Tourism Alberta to help grow Indigenous tourism businesses across the province. This funding will help Indigenous entrepreneurs expand their skills, leading to new business development and employment, particularly in Indigenous communities.
“Indigenous tourism is an important part of our economic recovery. This funding is a tremendous opportunity to create jobs in Indigenous tourism experiences, which in turn will help the overall economy of the province.”
Doug Schweitzer, Minister of Jobs, Economy and Innovation
