Quebec Receives CA$40M Tourism Boost

According to a report, the Trudeau government is offering CA$40 million to 60 tourism projects across 50 Quebec cities.

“We targeted projects that would really boost the tourism sector in each of the communities in the long term, and that would really serve as an engine to stimulate the local economy,” said Pascale St-Onge, the minister responsible for the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, at a press conference on Friday.

The Minister announced CA$500,000 in funding for the L’INFINI experience, a virtual reality activity based on images taken outside the International Space Station. 

The full list of the targeted projects isn’t yet known and will be announced in future announcements in the relevant regions.

The CA$40 million announced is part of the CA$500 million Tourism Assistance Fund announced in July 2021. Of the amount, CA$118.8 million was earmarked for Quebec. St-Onge claimed that the envelope still has unused funds to be deployed.

The announcement comes at a time when many in the tourism industry are concerned that the disruptions at Canadian airports will hurt Canada’s appeal to foreign tourists.
