May 12, 2023


To this day I can still visualize my parents sitting at the breakfast table every morning sipping coffee while they listened to the news on a portable radio. As a kid I didn’t really care or pay too close attention to what was being reported but I do recall hearing about court cases, politics, workplace and car accidents, house fires, and on rare occasions, natural disasters.

From time-to-time we would learn of a major earthquake, storm or drought somewhere in the world that claimed lives but nothing like what we see or hear about on a daily basis today. To be fair, we weren’t as connected back then so half the time we didn’t know what was going on outside of BC or Canada.

Nonetheless, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), a disaster related to a weather, climate or water hazard occurred every day on average over the past five decades, killing 115 people and causing some US $200 million in losses daily. Notwithstanding better reporting/recording of these events in recent years, the number of disasters has increased by a factor of five over the last 50 years, although the number of crisis-related deaths has decreased almost threefold since the early 70s.

WMO notes that storms and floods have caused the most damage (economically) over the years but because of climate change, we’re apt to see more heatwaves, drought and wildfires in future…events that our province has become all too familiar with in recent years.

Aboard the Rocky Mountaineer earlier this week with my board colleagues from TIAC, we passed through the town of Lytton, that in June 2021, recorded Canada’s highest-ever temperature at 49.6 Celsius (121 Fahrenheit) and a day later burned to the ground. Along the journey we could also see the swollen Thompson River, which acts as a tributary for the Bonaparte River that has breached its banks and wreaked havoc in Cache Creek this week. It’s the worst flooding the town has experienced in 50 years.

Emergency Management and Climate Readiness Minister Bowinn Ma has frequented news channels recently warning of more flooding in some areas of the province in the coming days due to rapid snow melt. Just a few days ago it was because of heavy rain. Now Minister Ma is warning residents to take precautions because of extreme heat. And that's on top of the wildfires in BC and in neighbouring Alberta.

On many days, climate-related emergencies have replaced politics, crime and other issues as the lead news story online and within more traditional information sources such as radio, television and newspapers. Just today, one local radio station started its newscast by interviewing consumers who were snapping up air conditioning units at home improvement stores in anticipation of a hot weekend and summer.

Tomorrow marks the end of Emergency Preparedness Week in British Columbia. Although it hasn’t received the attention that Tourism Week did a couple of weeks ago, for me it was reminder to encourage our industry to review, update or develop emergency plans that support that safety of visitors, the viability of tourism businesses, and our reputation as a safe and welcoming destination. In the story to follow this message, you will see resources to help you not only prepare for imminent emergencies but guide your disaster preparation efforts for both the short and long-term. You’ll also find excellent information on various websites (e.g. Destination British Columbia, TIABC, the regional tourism associations - BCRTS), related to the four pillars of emergency management including crisis mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

I’ve picked up my parents’ daily ritual of listening to my portable radio for daily news while sipping a coffee first thing in the morning. Many days I wish the lead story was not about the latest natural disaster at home or abroad. In either case, emergency preparedness will continue to be a priority for TIABC for the foreseeable future, regardless of whether its Emergency Preparedness Week in BC or not.

Uber Approved to Launch Ride-hailing Services in Victoria and Kelowna

The province’s independent Passenger Transportation Board (PTB) has approved Uber’s application to transfer and obtain the existing ride-hailing licence held by ReRyde Technologies.

Uber submitted a request to the PTB in late August 2022 to take over the licence of ReRyde, a ride-hailer that was granted a licence to operate in areas outside of the Lower Mainland in August 2020.

Several years ago, the PTB gave Uber the green light to operate in the Lower Mainland but rejected its application for Kelowna and Victoria, saying it wasn’t “convinced there exists a public need for the service applied for.”

Mayors for both cities endorsed the service when the application announcement was made, collectively citing increased road safety and job opportunities, as well as increased benefits to tourism operators.

A Thank-You Message from TIAC on
National Tourism Week 2023

TIAC President & CEO, Beth Potter, delivered the following message, thanking industry for their participation in National Tourism Week 2023.

"On behalf of all of us at the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, I am writing to express our deepest appreciation to you for your participation in National Tourism Week 2023.

Tourism Week is an annual invitation for all tourism partners to come together to champion and promote Canada’s destinations, tourism businesses, and employees – from coast to coast to coast. After more than two devastating years for tourism, border restrictions have finally been removed. The rebuilding of Canada’s visitor economy is now underway, but there’s a long way to go before tourism reclaims being the $105-billion economic powerhouse it was pre-pandemic. That’s why this year’s theme was CANADA: Powered by Tourism!

This year’s edition was again a remarkable success. A great number of tourism destinations and operators, as well as Senators, Cabinet Ministers, Members of Parliament, Premiers, provincial tourism ministers and other supporters from across the country actively participated in the social media campaign, generating more than 350 mentions from the online community and reaching some 1.1 million people.

Thank you to all of you who lit up in TIAC green, got involved on social, shared our key messaging and spread the word. Your participation in Tourism Week activities shows not only your amazing dedication and resilience but clearly demonstrates and sends the message that Canada (is): Powered by Tourism! Thank you.

Thank you again for your participation in National Tourism Week, and for your ongoing support of the work we do at TIAC. Looking forward to next year already!"
