Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

On way to Interview Minister Bernier
Considering the importance of Tourism in Canada, we wanted to discuss with Minister Bernier what smaller communities across the country could do to encourage development of this increasingly important aspect of our economic development and future?
Social media and marketing methods have changed. Our audience and potential visitors are becoming savvier as technology has created a desire to “see the experience”. If they can visualize the experience in a quick moment, they are more apt to come.
We are in competition with other Countries to attract visitors. To keep that in mind, Canada is very aware and is concentrating on marketing to Tourists “Seasonally”, attracting visitors year round to our rich and diverse Country.
As with our Ontario Visited coverage, one of our goals in promoting Tourism in Canada is to engage Canadian youth and Canadian seniors to travel in Canada. Why travel abroad, when your own Country has so much to offer.
Ontario Festivals Visited now offers and Canada Visited will be offering a Canada Visited Youth & Senior Correspondent Program during our Tour, where we will be encouraging Canadian’s, young and old, to submit their contributions to share in their experiences of Canada for all Canadians and visitors from around the world.
Minister Bernier agrees with us that it is important to engage New Canadians to contribute their stories and share with the world the diversity that Canada is comprised of. Minister Bernier tells us that we need to “listen to them”. Their connection to their New Country and their contributions will enhance the Canadian experience. Again, we encourage you to check out the Canadian Tourism Commission (http://en-corporate.canada.travel) to see a host of information you might find helpful and interesting at the same time.

Minister Bernier 
for his time and sharing!
The make-up of Canada is very fortunate to have such a diversity of history, landscape, natural wonders of the world, culture, and most importantly its people. The volunteers of our country contribute an enormous part of the success of Tourism in Canada. Be proud … Keep exploring your Country and welcome others to explore along with you
