Tourism HR Canada Offers Free Emerit Online Training to Students

Celebrate Canada 150 with a Tourism and Hospitality Skills Upgrade.

As part of the Canada 150 celebrations, Tourism HR Canada is offering its Emerit online training for free to students enrolled in tourism and hospitality programs1. Tourism students are the future leaders of the Canadian tourism industry, and the use of industry recognized, world-class competency training is one way to ensure the future of Canadian tourism is in good hands and the potential legacy of Canada 150 is realized.

As the country celebrates the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Canada’s tourism industry is expecting a record number of visitors from around the globe. Tourism professionals will be working hard to welcome and serve these visitors throughout the year-long celebrations, and providing exceptional customer service and memorable experiences is a vital part of showcasing Canada to the world during this once in a lifetime event.

Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, and is a major job creator and economic driver in Canada, employing over 10% of the Canadian workforce and generating $90 billion in annual revenue. The Canada 150 celebrations are an important opportunity for the tourism industry to turn millions of visitors into Canadian tourism champions, and capitalize on the momentum of a banner year by generating sustained growth and prosperity for years to come.
