Little Russia Activity for March 2012

March 6th, 2012

Members of Little Russia Association of Canada attended Canada-Russia NORTHERN TRADE and the Role of Ecotourism. The Roundtable took the discussions of Canada-Russia NORTHERN TRADE and the Role of Ecotourism to a higher level to explore issues related to supporting infrastructure; developing tourism product and creating demand within the northern context; enhancing sustainability (including environmental protection, cultural celebration and corporate social responsibility); building stronger partnerships and further exploring international trade opportunities. Participants explored how tourism can best interact with other industry sectors in the north, particularly mining. Representatives were invited from Northern and Aboriginal businesses, the transportation, housing, tourism and mining industries in the North, Chambers of Commerce, Economic Development Agencies and government agencies supporting northern business.
