Best Practices in Sustainable Aboriginal Tourism
About the Project
Aboriginal tourism is a growing tourism sector, and can bring positive impacts to communities. In places such as Australia, New Zealand, and South America, Aboriginal tourism has been successfully developed and promoted. However, Aboriginal tourism in Canada is less developed, which has led to much confusion about the definition, scope and purpose of this form of tourism development.
This project initially developed a list of best practices created through literature review. The researchers then conducted a content analysis of ten Aboriginal tourism project websites in Canada that looked for evidence of these best practices.
