2017 USA Market Research Perceptions & Recommendations
Destination Canada and ATAC partnered on a research study in 2017 to gain an understanding of how and what the USA traveller thinks about Indigenous tourism experiences in Canada. We created a report to help you, Indigenous tourism entrepreneurs and communities involved in tourism, to make the most of the research findings and maximize your marketing plans.
Guide to Aboriginal Tourism in Canada
The new 2017/18 Guide to Aboriginal Tourism in Canada, shares in the energy and power of Aboriginal tourism, and tells the story of ATAC members and their businesses by emphasizing the importance of distinct community voices. The guide highlights storytelling as a way of expression and connects the profiles of each of the members to both the individuals and their communities.
ATAC has created a series of itineraries highlighting how you can add an Aboriginal tourism experience to many of the popular travel routes throughout Canada. Whether you would like to shop for authentic Indigenous arts & crafts or taste Indigenous cuisine, stop in a community cultural centre to hear local stories and songs, or create a whole itinerary around Aboriginal touring experiences such as wildlife or wilderness, there are options to add to your trip in every province and territory across Canada.
Power of Aboriginal Tourism Video Series
As part of a multifaceted partnership, Destination Canada and ATAC are working together to create a series of Aboriginal tourism promotional videos which highlight exceptional and authentic Aboriginal experiences available in Canada. These videos are distributed online and presented at major industry events to build positive awareness of Aboriginal tourism in Canada.
