Chambers host Tourism Min.

North Okanagan tourism operators will have an opportunity to discuss the future of the industry with federal Tourism Minister Mélanie Joly.

On May 23, Joly will take part in a breakfast roundtable hosted by the Armstrong Spallumcheen and Greater Vernon chambers of commerce at Fairways Bistro in Armstrong. Joly will speak about the new federal tourism strategy and how it will create new opportunities and jobs for the middle class in the tourism sector across Canada.

"We are excited that Minister Joly is visiting the North Okanagan and is taking time to meet directly with tourism operators to learn about their success stories but also what challenges they face as businesses," said Patti Noonan, executive director of the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce.

"The visit of Minister Joly is a great opportunity for our chamber to work with our counterparts in Armstrong Spallumcheen as the benefits of tourism know no boundaries," said Dione Chambers, general manager of the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce.

Registration for the roundtable event begins at 8:15 a.m. and Fairways Bistro is located at 2440 York Ave.

Tickets are $15, including a light breakfast, and are available through the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce.
