A resource for news, support, research and rebuilding for Nova Scotia’s tourism operators.

Tourism Labour Market Forum

On February 23 NSTHRC and TIANS hosted the first ever Nova Scotia Labour Market Forum - Rebuilding the Nova Scotia Tourism Workforce. A video recording of the virtual event is now available, as are slide decks from Philip Mondor, President and CEO of Tourism HR Canada and Nancy Healey, Commissioner for the Employer with the Employment Insurance Commission of Canada.  We continue to support you, as we rebuild the tourism sector in Nova Scotia.

TIANS is working closely with our partners and stakeholders to support the Industry during this challenging time. As part of our efforts, we are taking steps to provide resources and updates for tourism operators through the new Tourism Strong digital hub.

Use Tourism Strong as your source for timely and relevant Industry news, government supports, research, health & wellness, and rebuilding into the future. Additional links, blogs from Industry leaders, news and tools will be added as they become available. Contribute to the conversation with post comments, or submit a Blog or FAQ to be added to the hub.

While we may be exploring unchartered territory, we are on this journey together. We are confident in the Industry’s resiliency and capacity to rebuild. Join the conversation at the TIANS Together Discussion Group on Facebook.
