At the beginning of March, ISTO members from Quebec - such as the Conseil Québécois du Loisir (CQL) and Kéroul - welcomed the action plan "for a responsible and sustainable tourism 2020-2025", presented by the Ministry of Tourism of Quebec.
This strategy identifies five structuring areas of intervention to accelerate the transition to "greener, more resilient tourism that is closer to people and communities", as outlined by the Conseil Québécois du Loisir.
Among the main axes are: the transition to a circular economy, sustainable means of transport, the development of nature and adventure tourism in an ecotourism approach, the promotion of tourism that is beneficial to individuals and respectful of communities, and the support of businesses in the adaptation and innovation regarding climate change.
Pierre-Paul Leduc, President of the CQL, said that: "Our social economy sector is becoming even more relevant in helping to achieve the ambitions of this plan. We offer to the Minister our collaboration in the implementation of this new action plan”.
While, Isabelle Ducharme - President of Kéroul - regarding the new maximum subsidy threshold for the Accessibility Program for tourism establishments, stated that: "We see that the program is reaching maturity and in this sense, we are delighted that the Ministry has heard and above all responded to our call to improve this program, which is dear to our community. "
ISTO is proud to support its members who work for tourism that serves people, communities and territories!
