West Side Tourism Development
Thank you for taking the time to think about and to respond to the following questionnaire about tourism.
For the past number of years, there has been a lot of discussion on how best to develop tourism in North West Saskatchewan. There have been numerous studies and gatherings discussing the topic. In recent months we have seen increased interest among many groups, organizations, and communities, to develop a tourism strategy. How do we best lead tourism development as residents of the region?
Following are some questions we’ve developed to help stimulate thoughts, perspectives, ideas, and proposals, on how we could develop this industry which may provide increased economic opportunity(ies) for residents in our home areas. Questionnaire is conducted by North West Communities Mngt Co.
