Supporting new adventures in Alberta. Increasing in Tourism funding could lead to tourism related jobs!, released by Alberta on 23 January 2024

Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news, I am Joy Stephen, a certified Canadian Immigration practitioner, and I bring to you this Provincial News Bulletin from the province of Alberta. This recording originates from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario.

In 2022, Alberta saw $10.7 billion in tourism spending, which represented an increase of $600 million from 2019 levels. This growth is evidence of a full recovery from the downturn during the pandemic, and Alberta’s tourism and hospitality providers are playing a key role in that recovery and growth.

Through Travel Alberta’s Tourism Investment Program, the government invested more than $20 million in 2023 to support tourism growth across the province. This investment spurs local economic growth by supporting rural development, cultural events and festivals while also accelerating the launch of shovel-ready tourism developments throughout the province.
