Tourism is vitally important to our region and communities. It is central to our efforts to preserve our culture and environment and generate economic growth. As a COTA and EIT member, you contribute to the success of your business and your industry and to social and economic benefits in Eeyou Istchee Baie-James.

Why is Sustainable tourism with a strong emphasis on cultural authenticity is important for Eeyou Istchee Baie-James?

  • It allows us to develop our communities and our economy in harmony with the environment.
  • It enables us to preserve our traditional way of life and share our culture with genuinely interested and respectful visitors.
  • It creates attractive career prospects for young Cree, providing them with an opportunity to be representatives for their communities and culture right here at home.
  • It would be difficult for tourism operators to achieve these objectives on their own.

To succeed, we need to work together. Work together to uphold our reputation for hospitality. Work together to create market-ready products. Work together to ensure that visitors are glad they chose Eeyou Istchee Baie-James as their vacation destination.
