Bay of Fundy wins 2nd Green Award

Just got back from Halifax where the Bay of Fundy Tourism project that I manage won a 2nd award for its green business program!

Received at the annual Gulf of Maine reception, this Department of Environment award recognizes the success of our non-profit association in developing and implementing environmentally responsible tourism principles.

Our eco-business program works directly with tourism operators to identify and reduce environmental impacts of their businesses.

Here's a photo of our team accepting the award. I am joined by staff from the Eco-efficiency Centre (who delivers the eco-biz program for us) as well as folks from NS Tourism, Culture & Heritage and the Tourism Industry Association of NS.

In October, 2006, we received national recognition for our program when we were awarded the Parks Canada/Globe & Mail Sustainable Tourism Award at the Tourism Industry Association of Canada conference in Alberta.
