The Product Development Committee is a group of industry representatives who meet every month to share insights and information about what's being done and what needs to be done to ensure New Brunswick's competitiveness with regards to tourism. Reports and recommendations from the committee are forwarded to decision makers.
TIANB is part of the ACTP Management Committee who's mission is to grow the tourism industry in Atlantic Canada, which today represents $3.24 billion annually for the region's economy and employs over 110,000 people.
TIANB's Executive Director will co-chair the Tourism Strategy Action Committee that will be formed to implement the newly created strategy. It will be comprised of five appointees from TIANB and another five from the provincial government. The committee will report to the minister of tourism and parks and to the president of TIANB.
TIANB is a member of the Advisory Board for the Action Plan for Self-Sufficiency in Northern New Brunswick. This Board is comprised of deputy ministers of the provincial government, members of the Northern New Brunswick Leadership Council, representatives from the Conseil Économique du Nouveau-Brunswick and representatives of regional municipalities and it will address issues, track results and provide necessary direction to the economic development team.
More information about this Advisory Board will be available soon.
TIANB is part of a recently formed Business Minimum Wage Coordination Committee (BMWCC), where common concerns relate specifically to the NB government's plan for incrementally increasing the minimum wage.
With the Government of New Brunswick recently not recommending the provincial standardization or regulation of destination marketing fees or a hotel levy, the future of the DMF (Destination Marketing Fee) Steering Committee is uncertain at this point.
TIANB plays an active role in the coordination and management of the Best Practices program (CTBP). It is a program designed to expose private sector operators and representatives of sustainable tourism communities to successful tourism operators/entrepreneurs and outstanding products and create an environment of 'Competitiveness Through Best Practices.' .
