2018 Canada-China Year of Tourism: Let's seize it together

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang have announced 2018 as the Canada-China Year of Tourism. This initiative is intended to create closer ties between Chinese and Canadian citizens. There has never been a better reason to visit and explore everything Canada has to offer. Destination Canada is working with industry and the Government of Canada to extend a warm invitation to our Chinese friends to visit and explore Canada as well as participate in Canadian-themed events in China.
