After two years of enduring the hardships of the global pandemic, its economic impact, and its polarizing effects on society, TIAC believes that tourism is the best way to demonstrate to the world Canada's values as a nation - resilience, peace, diversity, and inclusivity. Our collective values are needed now more than ever on the global stage.

This year's theme of "Travel now. For work, life, and play!" emphasizes that tourism in Canada is open for business and ready to safely re-welcome travelers from all over the world, whether for pleasure or business.

To celebrate tourism, TIAC is challenging destinations, landmarks, attractions, venues and hotels to light up in green from May 29-June 4 as part of its campaign to raise awareness of the industry's economic, social, and cultural importance in Canada. Business and government leaders across the country will also be sharing videos on their social media to show their support for the industry.
