B.C. Indigenous tourism operators at risk of closing because of pandemic

Indigenous tourism operators in British Columbia are at risk of shuttering because of lost revenue due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The billion dollar industry is expecting a tough summer because of movement and travel restrictions.

According to the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC), 90 per cent of business across the country could be effected.

At the moment, the ITAC is offering a $1.2 million aid package but the organization says more will be needed.
