Mount Saint Vincent University is establishing a new Indigenous cohort tourism education program called the Kinu Tourism Program. The program was developed in collaboration with Indigenous community leaders and aims to remove barriers to education and support future opportunities for Indigenous tourism entrepreneurs. The program is reportedly the first of its kind in Canada. “[W]e are working to build Mi’kmaw tourism opportunities that will welcome the world to Mi’kma’ki while working with the mainstream tourism industry to find ways to address reconciliation with our Mi’kmaw people,” said NS Indigenous Tourism Enterprise Network Executive Director Robert Bernard. The Kinu Tourism Program is funded with over $1.9M from the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiative Program. News Wire Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
