Since the pandemic began TIANS has been meeting with the provincial government, urging appropriate supports to stabilize the tourism sector.

On Friday, October 16th, the provincial government announced a $50 million Tourism Sector Loan Guarantee Program, which will serve less than 5% of the industry. While we appreciate the need for businesses to access capital, the limitations on this program for many large, mid-size and smaller operators, who do not meet the threshold, is extremely unfair to the sector. We need to design a broad range of supports  that leverage federal initiatives and address the unique conditions for Nova Scotia.
