From May 29 - June 4 Fort Simpson held a host of fun community events aimed at priming the Dehcho for a renewed influx of tourists.

A key result of this year’s Tourism Week was to determine who needs help, and what we can do to assist each other so the Dehcho is ready to open to visitors together.

Discussions were aimed at understanding the current situation and future prospects for tourism operators in terms of restarting and welcoming visitors. This networking event helped to foster and create industry-specific partnerships.

But there’s nothing saying that networking can’t be fun:
