Dear Provincial Election Candidate:
Tourism is an important economic generator and catalyst for jobs and tax revenue in communities across Nova Scotia. The Tourism Industry is at a critical juncture, as the 2021 provincial election approaches. Tourism businesses across the province have been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic; with hundreds of operators facing significant revenue losses and tens of thousands out of work. Despite these deep impacts, tourism is an extraordinarily resilient industry and operators are looking ahead to moving forward, rebuilding and reclaiming the position as Nova Scotia’s #1 Service Export.
The Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia (TIANS) respectfully requests your feedback around how your Party would capitalize on leveraging Nova Scotia’s tourism industry to spur transformational economic growth for the province. We have provided a brief industry scan for your review; as well as some tourism specific questions. Your feedback will be shared with TIANS members in advance of the August 17th election. We thank you in advance for your time and look forward to hearing from you.
