The 8 Cities are recommending that the Province remove the barrier that prevents cities from implementing a Destination Marketing Fee.
- The Provincial government must enact enabling legislation to allow municipalities the flexibility to implement a mandatory Destination Marketing Fee within their jurisdiction if they see fit. (6 months)
- This levy would allow cities to generate needed revenue that will be used for regional tourism marketing, events attraction and programs and projects supporting the tourism industry.
- Municipalities and regional governments will be more effective in marketing their region. This directly benefits the Province of NB.
