Northern Bruce Peninsula Initiates Sustainable Tourism Action Plan

13/10/17

The Northern Bruce Peninsula community is taking a progressive step toward the region’s growth as a sustainable world-class destination by engaging in a 3-Year Sustainable Tourism Management Action Plan.
 
For the past several years, tourism in Northern Bruce Peninsula has grown much more quickly than in previous years and this growth has strained the local community, environment, and economy. The Regional Tourism Organization 7 (RTO7) on behalf of and in partnership with the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula, the County of Bruce, Parks Canada and the Bruce Peninsula Environmental Group, will immediately begin developing a strategy that will strive for a balance between visitor growth and economic development of the region while protecting the local community and nature.
 
RTO7 has engaged one of Canada’s leading tourism development firms, Twenty31 Consulting, to develop a comprehensive strategy over the next six months.
 
The development of the strategy will begin immediately with Twenty31 presenting the process for the strategy development at the Bruce Peninsula Environment Group (BPEG) public meeting on Oct 18th. Within the next few months, Twenty31 Consulting will be reaching out to tourism stakeholders for their input. Information and updates will also be provided at http://www.rto7.ca/Public/Resources/Municipality-of-Northern-Bruce-Peninsula.
 
It is anticipated the final Sustainable Tourism Action Plan will be ready in March 2018.
 
If you have any questions on the project, please do not hesitate to contact Alexis Kereluk directly at alexisk@twenty31.org.
