Summer 2020 has felt different. Several of our members have looked to CFAS for suggestions and resources. In these unprecedented times, let’s embrace the summer vibes with some ideas to make this sunny season a memorable one! Here are just a few of our suggestions! While international travel plans have been cancelled or postponed, this is a great opportunity to see what your own province has to offer and support your local tourism industry.

Visit local tourist hotspots!
Many provinces have started re-opening. We advise you to call ahead and check for any requirements to attend local tourist attractions.
Take a stroll or drive around your city or town to discover new and unique spots. Admire architecture and take pictures. Become a tourist in your own province!
Camp, hike, or picnic at a provincial park!
Provincial parks by province – many are now open and operating at various levels! Check with your park before you visit in case certain requirements (e.g. wearing a mask) are in place.
