Port McNeill, B.C. - Joli White, Coordinator of Vancouver Island North Tourism has been working to support businesses in the region through outreach to proprietors and the Chambers of Commerce.
Joli is looking to engage struggling businesses with networking supports. "As far as outreach goes, we want to collect accurate information on revised business hours and offerings so we can help promote them to potential visitors. This is also an opportunity to share tools that can help the businesses in areas where they might be struggling. I can provide links to resources from Destination BC, share some easy ways for tourism businesses to feed their information through Tourism Vancouver Island and Destination BC for further reach, and give details about the Tourism Resiliency Program that is being offered to help businesses build support plans and access support programs that fit their needs. I will also be sitting on the Regional District of Mount Waddington's COVID recovery committee and can share information as it develops through that program."
