Economic Task Force releases progress report

The Banff and Lake Louise Economic Task Force has released a progress report outlining accomplishments, learnings and performance indicators for the five objectives that have guided their work since March 2020. The Task Force will continue its work to understand how to best serve the visitor and our community through winter, while being responsive to visitation levels, expectations and safety. If any member questions arise from the report, please contact darren@bllha.ca.

Recommendation to Waive Land Rents for Businesses Leasing Lands from the Federal Government in Parks Canada Places 

BLLHA recently sent recommendations to waive land rents in a letter addressed to a collective of four federal ministers, including Hon. Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance. Specifically, we requested that in the same way the government has appropriately assisted Canada’s airports to maintain liquidity by waiving federal land rents, that the government immediately waive land rent for businesses leasing lands from the Government of Canada, in Parks Canada places, for an initial one-year period (beginning Sept 1, 2020), with the consideration of further need for annual extension(s) until tourism revenues return to at least 75% of their pre-COVID-19 levels.
