Discover West Tourism is excited to announce initiatives to empower the local tourism industry in Alberta and British Columbia. As a non-profit organization, we are dedicated to creating, developing and sustaining tourism in rural destinations through local programs and investments.
Supported by the Rural Destination Development Marketing Fund, Discover West Tourism will distribute funding to approved applicants for use in Western Canada’s rural tourism sector.
We are proud to invest in the city of Fort St. John, British Columbia – also known as the Energetic City. Renowned for its resource base, Fort St. John is frequented by seasonal workers and beloved by residents. Founded as a trading post in the 1700s, Fort St. John has a long history of community engagement, with local events and festivals personifying an infectious, vibrant energy that exudes small-town charm.
Previous events sponsored by Discover West in Fort St. John have included winter favourites and events for the Fort St. John Figure Skating Club and Pomeroy Sports Centre.
By investing in local initiatives including sporting events, festivals and recreation opportunities, we believe we can fuel economic growth, connect communities, create jobs, inspire consumers, spur cultural growth and energize future developments.
The Discover West Tourism Marketing Funds allow us to enhance, increase and diversify year-round tourism in the communities where we operate. Additionally, they allow us to participate, when and where appropriate, in local programs that help promote the region as a tourist destination by creating sustainable funding for tourism marketing.
We look forward to even greater collaboration with local tourism associations and operators as we advance rural tourism.
