Sport Tourism opportunities

Sport tourism is big business in Canada and Thunder Bay is certainly seeing its fair share. Nationally, tens of thousands of events generate $2.4 billion...that's right, with a "B" nationally. Thunder Bay's share is approximately $31 million and accounts for 17% of our annual tourism industry.

Sport Tourism is also important in the development of a year around sustainable tourism industry. The reality is that our leisure season is primarily during the warm months. Sport tourism opportunities span the entire year and provide opportunities that benefit hotels, restaurants, retailers, service providers and attractions in the traditionally slower travel seasons.

Sport tourism is also a community collaborative effort. Our best partners are the individual sport organizations that champion for their own sports, leading bids and advocating within their own Provincial and National associations to bring events to Thunder Bay. It could not be done without them. Its important for the City, the organizations, hoteliers and others to continue to work as one cohesive unit to deliver the best possible returns.

The national and international events that we have a reputation for hosting certainly play a big part of increasing the City's profile as a destination of choice for hosting top notch events. However, events catering to all ages and skill levels across a plethora of sports and recreational activities help contribute to the local sport economy. Consider that the Ontario youth diving and swimming championships held back to back in the city in 2008 generated over $1.5 million alone in economic impacts, its easy to see how every sport tourism event helps our economy.

The City's new sport tourism policy places more effort and resources towards bidding on events that deliver the best return on the community's investment. With bid assistance, a new event central "one window" approach to helping community partners develop their sport tourism event and marketing assistance, we're moving forward to build upon an already successful track record.

Sport tourism is also less prone to economic downturns. People still play sports, they still compete and they still attend events. They may stay a little closer to home or be more selective about what they attend but they still participate.

Tourism Thunder Bay participated in the 2009 Canadian Sport Tourism Congress, the ninth annual gathering of National and Provincial Sport organizations and tourism industry officials. It was a three day event that provided professional development opportunities to encourage more success in bidding and hosting events, building new infrastructure and creative marketing approaches. The annual marketplace - the speed dating of the sport tourism world - allowed us to meet with representative of various sport tourism rights holders and pitch the city for 8 minutes each.

Alot. And for the record, we did not ban all guns.
here
twenty-nine per cent of Canadian homes possess an estimated total of nine million firearms. Other authorities insist that even this figure is too low, and that there is at least twenty million firearms in Canada. The UN reported that Canada ranks third among the developed western countries (behind the United States and Norway) in the civilian ownership of firearms.
There is an average of three firearms in every gun-owning Canadian household. The majority of gun-owning households in Canada own rifles and/or shotguns; on a per capita basis, Canadians own nearly as many rifles as Americans

  • Avatar jonathan America VS Australia?
    Sep 08, 2013 by jonathan | Posted in Other - Environment

    America has larger and more diverse economy
    America has better universities
    America has more immigrants and tourism
    America has better people(more friendly)
    America is the financial center of the world
    America has number 1 military
    America has more geographic …Australia has universal healthcare
    Australia has less crime
    Australia has better education
    Australia has better transportation but it could be argued America has better transportation due to NYC, Chicago, Boston, Philly and such.


    Which country is better?

    • Everything does not have to be a competition. Why pit one against the other while they are different and still have such good things. Watch some sports if you want to pick a team. blech.

  • Avatar Jessica M Me and my cousin want to live in Australia, we just dont know what part.?
    Feb 22, 2008 by Jessica M | Posted in Other - Australia

    I think the longest were gonna stay is 4-6 months, we want a nicer place to stay that wont cost us a lot of money, we'll be getting small jobs and we want some where closer to a city.

    • Melbourne, is great, its a big city and has heaps of things to do, you will never be bored and its not too expensive.

  • Avatar Seán Why is Tasmania so different to the rest of Australia?
    Sep 30, 2009 by Seán | Posted in Hobart

    Its just something thats been bugging me. Why do so many people regard Tasmania as not a part of Australia? I was listening to someone talk to someone living in Tasmania and they were like "When you move to Australia you'll need to do this, that and the other" Is there some secret plan to make Tasmania its own country or something? And it seems that Tasmania and (the rest of) Australia compete for tourism etc. Like one of Tasmania's recent tourism campaigns was "Bigger then Australia" Its just weird.

    • I'm from Tasmania and I was once told my car was not registered in Australia by a NSWs cop. we think we are separate because we are treated as separate
