New chairperson appointed at Destination Canada
“2016 was a record-breaking year for tourism in Canada. This was fuelled by leaders in the industry from coast to coast to coast, who work tirelessly to showcase our incredible experiences and destinations to the world. Mr. Cowan-Dewar is one of our tourism industry’s great leaders. His trailblazing work in the Maritimes—which included building his own business and supporting other tourism operators as chair of Tourism Nova Scotia’s Board of Directors—will be of great value in his new role as the chair of the Board of Destination Canada. I look forward to working with Mr. Cowan-Dewar and the Destination Canada team as they continue to promote Canada’s world-class tourism industry and create economic growth for middle-class Canadians.”
– The Honourable Bardish Chagger, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons and Minister of Small Business and Tourism
- The Government is committed to promoting increased tourism to Canada, and Destination Canada has a strong track record of working with partners to maximize the impact of marketing campaigns. A strong and thriving tourism industry creates jobs and generates economic growth for middle-class Canadians.
- Destination Canada is governed by a board of directors that is reflective of best practices in modern corporate governance. The chairperson leads a board of up to 12 members who oversee the management of Destination Canada and provide strategic guidance and effective oversight.
