“A United Conservative government will implement a stable and predictable funding formula for Travel Alberta and facilitate private sector partnerships to get Albertans back to work. Our support for innovative approaches to sustaining funding for tourism promotion and marketing, through partnerships with the private sector, will create growth and the jobs that come with it.”

A United Conservative Government Will:

  • Establish a target to double tourism spending in Alberta to $20 billion by 2030.
  • Direct Travel Alberta to work with tourism stakeholders to develop a new 10-year Tourism Strategy that leverages the private sector to assist the government in promoting Alberta as a tourist destination.
  • Reorient the mandate of Travel Alberta to actively facilitate and attract private sector funding and public-private partnerships for its tourism marketing and promotion activities.
  • Remove intrusive laws, rules, and regulations which impede the development of Alberta’s tourism sector.
  • Work with the federal government and airport authorities in Calgary and Edmonton to expand air transport agreements and get more flights to Alberta from tourist source countries.
