The Village of McBride announced today that the Activate Tourism McBride Project will proceed with $100,000 in funding from the Rural Economic Diversification and Infrastructure Program – Economic Capacity Stream.
The Activate Tourism McBride Project will grow the municipality’s economic capacity with a focus on developing the community’s tourism economy and support the creation of a local tourism coordinator position.

The project will provide many community benefits including supporting the creation of tourism-specific employment; developing tourism experiences in the area; developing and strengthening the organizational structure and capacity of the McBride Tourism Committee; and, supporting community and Council goals to capitalize on funding and collaborations that diversify the economy towards tourism.
