Official Charitable Partner
While Tourism Victoria recognizes the inherent value of all charities, we are unable to sponsor, endorse or otherwise support the vast majority of requests that come through. The organization does strongly believe in giving back to the community and is pleased to have the BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF) as their official charitable partner.
The BCHF offers assistance to individuals within the hospitality community who are coping with financial crises arising from health or medical conditions. Tourism is responsible for an estimated 22,000 jobs in Greater Victoria and Tourism Victoria's partnership with the BCHF signals support to those in the community who dedicate themselves to the hospitality industry.
Destination marketing is Tourism Victoria's core business and the organization's mandate is to inspire the world to experience our destination. In the last three years Tourism Victoria has won ten awards provincially, regionally, nationally and internationally.
