The AHLA is pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to the Federal Tourism Growth Strategy. We have outlined the challenges that hotels continue to face post-pandemic and opportunities for growth. We focused our submission around three pillars:

  1. Dedicated Labour Strategy
    • Prioritize hotel sector jobs within the Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) Program.
    • Adjust policies within the International Experience Canada (IEC) Working Holiday program.
    • Increase opportunities for international students.
  2. Improve Access for Visitors and Create a Predictable Travel Environment.
  3. Build a Regenerative and Inclusive Hotel Industry.
