Community Tourism Planning in Manitoba

This training explores topics important to planning for tourism in the participant’s community and implementing actions that will help make tourism a success. It will guide them through the process of preparing a community tourism plan and help identify opportunities and challenges their community might face. It will also help them decide whether tourism has potential for their community. Our hope is to create a network of passionate and motivated individuals who see the potential of tourism as an economic vector in their region and the province at large. We hope that the workbook will be shared widely and used to provoke conversation and perhaps the catalyst for future tourism, economic and community development.
