TIANB’s Board Priorities

The priorities provide the Board with wide-ranging directions for the future and are the roadmap from which the Board will develop a detailed annual action plan to help us achieve our industry objectives.

  1. Facilitate awareness of the importance of additional investments in the tourism labour market. The overall aim is to create a more resilient and inclusive labour market.
  2. Work collaboratively with ATAC and indigenous organizations in NB to support Aboriginal cultural products and experiences. TIANB believes in growing Aboriginal Tourism Businesses and Job Opportunities in NB.
