Strong rural communities are essential to a thriving Atlantic Canadian economy. This is why the federal government is working closely with its many partners to help diversify the regional economy and create jobs. Through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), the Government of Canada is helping to expand rural tourism opportunities in Gros Morne and build a strong, sustainable and inclusive economy.
Rural tourism is a key source of revenue and jobs in communities across Atlantic Canada. Boating and other waterfront activities attract tourists and enrich the visitor experience, generating tourism dollars for the local economy.
The Government of Canada is making strategic investments to ensure a safe and sustainable economic recovery, while also focusing on the health and well-being of all Canadians. As the economy reopens, the federal government will always put Canadians first and work to build a better and more inclusive Canada for everyone.
Diverse and meaningful tourist experiences strengthen the region’s tourism industry. This is why the federal government is working closely with communities to help attract investment in new visitor opportunities that will help build more inclusive and prosperous local economies.
