Travel Alberta is the destination management organization of the Government of Alberta. Established as a Crown corporation on April 1, 2009, they operate under the authority of the Travel Alberta Act within the Ministry of Tourism and Sport. Travel Alberta drives the growth of the province’s visitor economy, creating and promoting must-visit destinations throughout the province. They do this by helping businesses develop memorable products and experiences, marketing those products and experiences to the world, and ensuring visitors have access to them.
Tourism Directory – Travel Alberta manages the Alberta Tourism Information Service (ATIS). ATIS supports three different content types that partners can use to accurately communicate the types of experiences that they offer:
- Business Listings
- Special Offers
We would recommend all businesses ensure they have an ATIS listing and use the events calendar to promote their events.
Funding – Travel Alberta also offers various investment streams which businesses can apply to. Find out more here.
