Have you ever wondered how important Tourism is to Waterloo Region?
Tourism brings outside dollars into our region, which results in economic development and job creation.
DYK: One in 11 jobs in Canada relies on the Tourism industry!
As you attend local festivals and events throughout the year, you probably don’t think about the economic impact they have on the community. And they are just one part of the tourism equation. Meetings and conventions, sporting events and tournaments, as well as our local attractions all encourage growth across a number of sectors and industries!
The week of May 26-June 2, 2019 is Tourism Week in Canada, and it’s an opportunity to showcase the economic and social impacts of the tourism industry here in Waterloo Region.
Use #ExploreWR to join us in celebrating Tourism Week in Canada, and take some time to find out why #TourismMatters
