Indigenous Community Tourism Development

Hamilton Halton Brant Regional Tourism Association is working in partnership with Ogwehoweh Skills and Trades Training Centre and the Grand River Employment and Training (GREAT) to develop two educational tourism certifications for Indigenous Community Members only.

Each certification program will be held over 2-days (over a weekend) taking place in March 2022. All training will be done face-to-face and will be hands-on with activities.
