The SDÉ collaborates with key stakeholders in economic development to implement measures and projects aiming to better position French-speaking tourism in British Columbia. We promote the province, and its businesses and organizations in the tourist industry that provide services in French (currently around 370 URL addresses), through our website, and we strive to raise the awareness of policy-makers and governments regarding bilingualism and the Francophone heritage through a variety of products, such as scenic routes, and gourmet, historic and cultural tours. In addition, in the area of employment, the SDÉ participates in delivering the Tourism Career Awareness Program (TCAP) for youth, and also looks after placing students with businesses.
