What is HelloPG?

In 2015, Destination British Columbia accepted applications for the new Visitor Services Innovation Fund and Prince George received support to begin a community ambassador program. The purpose of our program is to meet the challenge of a rapidly changing travel market: tourism organizations no longer dictate where or how travellers find information, but must react to information seeking behaviour that shifts frequently. Travel planning has become increasingly user driven, and therefore it takes a community effort to maintain updated information in all the places that visitors may be looking.

Ambassador Programs

If you would like to arrange a training session or participate in any of these programs, please contact Michael Stanyer, Program Manager for Visitor Services, stanyer@tourismpg.com, 250-649-3209.


HelloPG Community Ambassador Fair

The HelloPG Community Ambassador Fair is a chance for hospitality staff, event volunteers, and enthusiastic locals to refresh their community knowledge for the up-coming travel season. This is a local knowledge educational event, but will have an informal trade-show format with live music and opportunity for conversations with exhibitors. The fair is made possible by the Destination British Columbia Visitor Services Innovation Fund.

  • Connect with Prince George's top attractions: Learn about new developments, test samples, and ask questions to help you prepare for the tourism season.
  • Meet the Tourism Prince George staff: Let us know what the travel season looks like to you, find out how we can help out, and learn about what we do.
  • Take a tour of the Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum: Transportation and tour guides are supplied, but space is limited so register ASAP. The bus will leave the Coast Inn of the North at 11:00am and return at 12:45pm.
