Stakeholders

A stakeholder model has been adopted by the Tourism Prince George Board of Directors which means that all tourism businesses and organizations in the Prince George region are automatically stakeholders without having to pay a membership fee. A variety of partnership programs are in the development stage which will allow stakeholders to take advantage of leveraged opportunities to promote their businesses and increase tourism activity.

Tourism Prince George is funded through a Service Agreement with the City of Prince George along with the collection of the Municipal and Regional District Tax (MRDT). Other revenue sources include partnership programs, advertising sales, merchandise sales, and marketing contracts.
