Support for Tourism Industry

Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia

To keep Nova Scotia’s Tourism Industry up-to-date on how the industry is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia has developed the Tourism Strong platform.


The Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia has also developed a Safety and Prevention Measures document to guide businesses in protecting workers, their families, and the community from possible infection and illness.


Hospitality Reopening Guidance

P&G Professional developed a document to provide cleaning and disinfecting information, guidelines, and hygienic practices that may be necessary to reopen a hospitality establishment during COVID-19.


COVID-19 Tourism Recovery Research and Marketing Approach

Tourism Nova Scotia is sharing research on potential post-COVID-19 tourism recovery scenarios and our phased provincial marketing approach to support the tourism industry. 


Canada’s Regional Development Agencies

Canada’s Regional Development Agencies are closely monitoring the COVID-19 global challenge and the impact it is having on businesses and workers, as well as the broader economy. The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) is this region’s Regional Development Agency. If you are a tourism operator or small- or medium- sized business or organization and have received ACOA funding and COVID-19 is affecting your operations, you are encouraged to contact your local ACOA office to review your situation and provide guidance.


Tourism Nova Scotia has created a video aimed at sharing Nova Scotia’s spirit of community and support for one another, while reminding people that even though we can’t visit and explore right now, we will be ready to welcome visitors and enjoy our beautiful province when the time is right. The video was created with existing footage and with footage captured in compliance with social distancing measures.
