Tourism Master Plan Survey

More than just any other industry, tourism requires collaboration and partnering locally with residents, businesses, user groups and organisations, as well as with regional and provincial organisations. Done right, tourism can bring many benefits to communities; doing it right requires proactive planning and ongoing governance for community success.

A community based tourism master plan is a document informed by the community and developed by a group with a broad cross-section of interests related to tourism. The planning process often provides an opportunity for business, local government, cultural organisations, other community based groups and community members to:

- Identify a tourism vision that supports broad community outcomes
- Understand tourism resources and potential
- Capitalise on existing and emerging tourism opportunities
- Address tourism obstacles to overcome
- Allocate resources to pursue actions in the short/medium/long term
- Set the future stage for long-term success

The Tourism Master Plan surveys are still open until November 4, don’t miss your opportunity to make your voice heard - what you envision for Fernie when it comes to tourism over the next ten years.
