As an aside, when speaking of Canadian Tourism, Bernier cautions, we as Canadian’s, must be sure when we share our “Canadian Tourism Commission signature experiences” to our visitors, including fellow Canadians and visitors from Abroad, we do so with respect and pride. We need to keep working together; collaboratively in communities across the Country to benefit everyone. Collaborative marketing programs may also enhance the ease of the experience for both organizers and visitors alike.
