IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference 2022

IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference 2022

Join peers and stakeholders in the tourism industry in Victoria, BC this winter for the third annual IMPACT Conference: a national discussion on the industry’s impact on Canada’s economic, social, environmental and cultural fabric. IMPACT’s goal is to align the Canadian tourism industry, as well as stakeholders and communities touched by tourism, behind a vision to achieve economic, social and environmental sustainability.

IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference 2022

The tourism industry has the opportunity to impact global change and lead the world in a new age of environmental and social responsibility.

IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism is presented by a partnership between Destination Greater VictoriaSynergy EnterprisesTartan Bond and Starrboard Enterprises. The title “IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism” was chosen to convey the importance of tourism as an economic driver as well as the large footprint it has on the environment, social and cultural fabric of a destination.


To drive, inspire and demonstrate innovative and collaborative sustainable solutions for positive tourism development across Canada.


As we work through this pandemic in the tourism market in Canada, environmental and social issues continue to threaten the sustainability of our planet and communities. The IMPACT founding partners recognized the urgency and opportunity in convening leaders to have a holistic dialogue about how we can create new partnerships, leverage technology, and change the trajectory of tourism towards a restorative, sustainable industry that Canada will benefit from for decades to come. This future-oriented discussion is timely and, until now, has not been convened within the tourism industry on a national scale.

As conference organizers, we believe through conversation, inspiration and collaboration we can position Canada as a global leader in sustainability and innovation in tourism and drive a competitive advantage for the future. This is the legacy we hope to create from the IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference.


Dialogue and recommendations will be captured from this annual conference of thought leaders to produce the IMPACT Conference Highlights Paper. This paper will be distributed to all attendees to drive forward changes from one year to next. In the time between IMPACT conferences, IMPACT representatives will present the paper at other major tourism conferences throughout Canada – moving our dialogue into action.
