Building a sustainable tourism industry together.

The BC Tourism Sustainability Network (BCTSN) is a collaborative tourism support program powered by the BC Tourism Climate Resiliency Initiative and its partner organizations, including Destination BC, the six Regional Destination Management Organizations (RDMOs), Indigenous Tourism BC, and the BC Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture & Sports.

The BCTSN is designed and delivered by the tourism industry for the tourism industry, combining the sector’s specialized understanding of its own needs and nuances with the expertise of sustainability experts. The BCTSN was created in 2022 by the BC Regional Tourism Secretariat (BCRTS) in partnership with regional tourism associations 4VI, Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, Kootenay Rockies, Northern British Columbia, Thompson Okanagan, and Vancouver, Coast & Mountains.
