The Tourism Industry Association of BC (TIABC) advocates for the interests of British Columbia’s $15 billion+ visitor economy. As a not-for-profit tourism industry association, TIABC works collaboratively with its members – private sector tourism businesses, industry associations and destination marketing organizations – to ensure the best working environment for a competitive tourism industry. We have taken significant steps to modernize our organization by expanding membership to include all sector businesses and destination marketing organizations, updating our governance model, and by establishing progressive methods to better distill issues and provide practical solutions. A world-class industry that competes in a tough, global marketplace requires a respected trade association that adheres to best practices in research-based policy development and advocacy. TIABC’s vision is for the tourism industry to be recognized as one of British Columbia’s leading and sustainable industries. As the primary advocate for B.C.’s visitor economy, TIABC unites operators, sectors, DMOs, government and residents to support and be passionate about making this province a great place for tourism. They measured their baseline greenhouse gas emissions inventory for the 2008 calendar year. They have set a reduction target of 5% against their baseline, to be achieved through business travel and paper consumption reductions.
