Forward together: tourism in Strathcona County 

Thank you to all who attended our tourism industry conference on June 1.

Tourism is aptly referred to as "an industry of industries," so collaboration between stakeholders is essential to move the industry forward. This half-day conference allowed tourism stakeholders the opportunity to come together for educational opportunities and for valuable networking time.

Tourism Strategy and Implementation Plan

Our vision: within 10 years, Strathcona County will be known as a place where visitors can come to enjoy compelling nature-based offerings, authentic agritourism activities, and immersive cultural experiences, along with other opportunities like sports tourism, and festivals and events.

The strategy will help us understand what Strathcona County and the business community can do to support the community and economy through tourism. 


Product Development Plan

Upon completion of the Tourism Strategy, it was recommended that the next step be to complete a tourism product development plan. Businesses and organizations that offer activities, products, concepts, or experiences that attract visitors were consulted to generate ideas to spur tourism product development.
