The Connecting America tourism campaign, led by the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC), will market Canadian destinations to US travelers with the goal of attracting an additional 680,000 Americans over the three-year period.

“The National Round Table on Travel & Tourism, which includes the Hotel Association of Canada, the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, the Canadian Airports Council, the National Airlines Council of Canada and the International Air Transportation Association, has worked diligently with the government to facilitate this program”, said Tony Pollard President, the HAC. “This announcement demonstrates the government’s commitment to the tourism industry in Canada.”
