New Travel Rules – Stay Local to Bend the Curve

Stay Local to Bend the Curve – New Travel Rules

The Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport, Indigenous Tourism BC, Tourism Industry Association of BC, BC Hotel Association, and Destination BC have released a joint statement, in response to the new travel orders that were released on April 23, 2021, asking people to stay local and bend the curve. The full statement can be read here.

The release notes that, “We are at a pivotal moment in our province and we must act now to protect the health-care system. We must stay local now so we can get back to travelling across our beautiful province and once again welcome visitors.”

Please help spread the message: #WeAreAllConnected; #StayLocalSupportLocal; #BCTourismCounts; #SaveOurSummer


A Tourism Industry Travel Restrictions Toolkit has also been released and in this toolkit, you will find key messaging statements as well as an FAQ section. The toolkit can be downloaded here.
