Prepared Destination Area Plans

The following are samples of Tourism Destination Area plans developed when communities, attractions, businesses and residents collaborate to increase tourism traffic to their region.

Community Tourism Plans

Saskatchewan communities are increasingly turning to tourism as an opportunity for economic diversification and job creation. The retention of businesses and services in many communities depends more and more upon visitor spending. Twenty-five cities, towns, villages and First Nations across Saskatchewan have completed Community Tourism Plans since 2005. A number of these communities are prepared to share their Community Tourism Plans upon request. 

For more information, please contact the Tourism Saskatchewan Saskatoon office at (306) 933-5900.
