The Tourism Division works to create a positive business environment to make Alberta a desirable place to invest in tourism.
Our investment services help realize tourism development projects such as hotels, resorts, golf courses, recreational vehicle (RV) campground and cabin developments, and
other attractions, activities, amenities and services.
We help provide path-finding assistance to for-profit/commercial endeavours and community-based/non-profit organizations relative to accessing capital, including government
grant programs and foundations. We can also connect you with the research you need to substantiate your business case or feasibility study, as well as information on tourism
sectors of interest.
Our investment services focus on:
- Investment in regional tourism opportunities
- Attracting international investors to joint-venture opportunities
Tourism Investment Opportunities
Alberta's Tourism Framework actively encourages entrepreneurial investment in traveller-focused development of innovative tourism experiences, destination renewal and new destination
areas through new collaborative partnerships with regions, communities and industry stakeholders. This approach will create and enhance traveller-focused experiences around the province
by identifying and prioritizing areas holding high tourism value.
In support of facilitating access to capital for the tourism industry, the Alberta government has released several publications that highlight numerous ready-to-invest tourism development
opportunities in the Mighty Peace, Northwest, Southwest and SouthGrow regions. Also available is an overview that provides information about Alberta's business environment and the economic climate
that supports investment opportunities in Alberta's tourism sector.
