Discover the opportunities of the tourist industry
Drawing on the knowledge and resources of its partners in the tourist industry, including some education and employment specialists, the SDECB facilitates workshops on request to raise awareness about careers in tourism. It also facilitates the recruitment of young people and immigrants, guiding and informing them in this industry that is growing by leaps and bounds in British Columbia.
Immersion through travel
In order to encourage the Francophone and Francophile community in British Columbia, future immigrants and foreign tourists to discover our province, the SDECB uses recent market trends to regularly develop programs and itineraries illustrating Francophone heritage and culture, the variety of the regions and their businesses, the bounty of local food and drink, and B.C.’s most beautiful natural attractions, always focusing on authentic experiences.
