Funding Announced for Visitor Information Centres
Minister of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation, Christopher Mitchelmore announced $71,000 for nine Regional Visitor Information Centres located around the province. This funding builds upon the $1.2 million investment made by the Provincial Government to the eight Provincial Information Centres, including Deer Lake Airport and St. John’s Airport which are open year round.
This funding will help facilitate the development of tourism experiences, services and attractions across Newfoundland and Labrador.
Visitor information centres engage over 200,000 visitors every year, providing information and advice to travellers on local festivals and events, attractions and experiences and directions to hidden gems, located throughout the province.
In 2017, a record breaking 553,000 travellers visited Newfoundland and Labrador.
