The intent of #WeAreTourism is to create a grass-roots movement to support the Tourism & Hospitality Industries across Metro Vancouver. The task force identified a supportive and welcoming resident community as a critical element of recovery. Our objective is to inspire Tourism & Hospitality associates from a diversity of sectors and backgrounds to advocate for their industry by drawing attention to the impact and significance of tourism in creating the vibrant and livable Metro Vancouver community that we all enjoy.
We invite tourism and hospitality associates to get involved in a social media movement to advocate for our industry and draw attention to the impact that tourism has on the well being of our entire community. Help spread the word by sharing the diversity of our personal stories, businesses we work at, the people we are missing and the events and experiences that we create, we will demonstrate the role that tourism plays in making Metro Vancouver one of the world’s most liveable cities.
Build a groundswell of support and positive sentiment between our industries and communities by:
- sharing the diversity of our personal stories across social media platforms
- demonstrating the importance of the industry to our local economy
- offering recommendations for the community
- challenging friends, family and community to enjoy our destination this summer
