The goal of this advisory council is to provide the provincial government with input regarding the issues and opportunities affecting the tourism industry, which will, in turn, assist the government in developing and implementing appropriate strategies for the industry.

The 25-member council will be comprised of individuals from across the B.C. tourism industry, thereby providing a diverse range of expertise and knowledge. Members must be available to attend council meetings, which will be held at least twice a year; compensation for travel will be provided.
