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.
