Here’s Your Chance

The Vancouver Island North Tourism Advisory Committee (VINTAC) is requesting expressions of interest from tourism stakeholders within the Regional District of Mount Waddington (RDMW) interested in becoming a part of this volunteer committee for the 2017-2018 term.

Vancouver Island North Tourism has been created to focus on the promotion and management of tourism as a region. Representing the municipalities of Port Hardy, Port McNeill, Alert Bay, Port Alice, and Electoral Areas A, B, C and D, this coordinated approach lets each community have a larger impact by working together as a region. Promotion of Vancouver Island North as a destination happens through marketing programs, media relations, and work with the travel trade.

VINTAC is an advisory committee of the RDMW that is formed by a regionally representative group of volunteer members representing Tourism Stakeholder, First Nation, municipal and RDMW positions. The role of the committee is as follows:
