VICTORIA, B.C. – The Government of British Columbia has announced they’ve dedicated relief funding for the province’s tourism sector.

The Province will be committing $100 million in dedicated relief funding for the tourism sector. Along with this funding, the Province will also be allocating $5 million to Indigenous Tourism BC, which will help Indigenous businesses.

The application process for funding will be through the Small and Medium-sized Business Recovery Grant program and has been streamlined to make it easier for all businesses to qualify, especially those hit hardest in the sector. Businesses will be eligible to receive up to $45,000 to help recover.

Any adjustments to the Small and Medium-sized Business Recovery Grant Program have already been implemented ad the Indigenous tourism relief grant program will be launched in the New Year.

More information can be found on the B.C. website.
