As part of the Impact Assessment Working Group’s mandate, research was conducted to develop estimates on the overall impact of COVID-19 on the Metro Vancouver tourism and hospitality industry. The research done by the Task Force is used by the Sector Advocacy Working Group in their communication to various levels of government and the Issues Management and Communications Working Groups for media outreach.

We have also gathered relevant research from industry partners to provide Task Force members with insights to inform and enhance the effectiveness of their future marketing and business plans as the industry works towards recovery.
