All our relations, growing indigenous tourism

The Summit gathers people from across Atlantic Canada to showcase Indigenous Tourism. Together with our partners from Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, we have put together a variety of presentations and panel discussions that share local, provincial and national knowledge. There will be cultural performances, Indigenous culinary experiences, industry workshops, as well as Indigenous arts and craft showcases.

This will be the 3rd Atlantic Indigenous Tourism Summit, as it was previously hosted in New Brunswick and virtually by Nova Scotia. This year, we anticipate a wide array of participants including Indigenous Leaders, Ministers, Tourism business owners, guides, funders, government representatives, community groups, as well as a variety of provincial and national Indigenous Tourism Association staff. Your attendance would be a valuable addition to our event as we celebrate the success of Indigenous Tourism across Atlantic Canada.
