Last week Travel Manitoba Ambassador Al McLachlan conducted a presentation at The Pas Chamber of Commerce monthly board meeting where he talked about the Northern Tourism Strategy. According to McLachlan the Northern Tourism Strategy has been developed from discussions from different stake holders in the North on how to increase tourism in Northern Manitoba.
McLachlan says tourism in the north sits about 115 million dollars and the goal is to bring the number up by the 2022. Travel Manitoba is now going to be doing some of the marketing for Northern Manitoba and through this strategy there will be more focus on the north.
During the meeting they also talked about different things that people could do to increase tourism. When it comes to tourism It’s important for people to promote tourism by telling others what they can get out of certain tourist attractions and its everyone’s responsibly to promote communities in a positive way to attract tourists.
