Tourism Businesses and Parks Canada

Today, the government made an announcement regarding help for Canadian small businesses and the tourism industry. Tourism is one of Kootenay-Columbia’s main economic drivers and families of the tourism sector have been hit particularly hard. To help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on Canada’s tourism industry, Parks Canada will work with tourism operators in national parks, historic sites, and marine conservation areas to defer payments on commercial leases and licences of occupation without interest until September 2020.
