The Bank of Canada presentation will be done in conjunction with National Tourism Week, which takes place from May 29 to June 4, 2016. Tourism Week in Canada is a grassroots imitative that brings attention to the economic opportunity available to Canada through travel, tourism, as well as addressing the public policy challenges that are preventing the sector from capitalizing on those opportunities.
