Preparing for a Sport Hosting & Economic Reboot

Over this past summer many of our members actively participated on our Sport Tourism Canada COVID-19 Recovery Task Force. We are now continuing this valuable work and in conjunction with Destination Canada, with the support of Sport for Life, are beginning the preparation for a sport hosting and economic reboot.

We have three major objectives for this project:

  1. To provide meaningful, actionable insights into the current state of Sport Hosting/Sport Tourism in Canada.
  2. To enable the return of hosting and to restart local economies through sport tourism.
  3. To provide the information that will restore confidence from participants, spectators and communities in hosting, attending and travelling to sport events.

Your perspective on COVID-recovery is critical to begin Canada’s response and preparation for a sport hosting and economic reboot. We need your input! 

Please take 15 minutes to complete a survey that will provide the data to help sport tourism be reimagined and become more nimble in bidding for and hosting sport events in the future.

Deadline for responses: December 18, 2020.

This will be the most comprehensive industry-wide research study to-date inclusive of local, provincial and national stakeholders.  

As we are working with multiple partners on the distribution of the survey, there is a chance that you may receive it more than once. We do apologize if this occurs and ask that you complete it only once on behalf of your organization.

Thank you in advance for your support. When complete,  the results will be shared as a resource for the entire sport, sport hosting, and sport tourism industries.

We know sport can be a significant driving force in the recovery of the country post-COVID-19 and Sport Tourism Canada will continue to work on behalf of all sport tourism players to see the vibrant sector truly ‘Bouncing Back’.

Everyone who responds by the deadline will be entered into a random draw and one person will receive free registration to the 2021 Sport Events Congress in Ottawa next April.
