The City closed Waterfront parking lots and the West Beach Parkade starting March 23, allowing only 15 and 30-minute parking on the north side of Marine Drive for takeout food from local restaurants.

Vancouver, Coast & Mountains Tourism Resiliency Program

Destination BC has launched the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains (VCM) Tourism Resiliency Program to provide tourism businesses in the region with meaningful, one-on-one support to navigate government resources and expert advice and work towards eventual recovery.

The VCM Tourism Resiliency Program includes two components:

1. Tourism businesses will be paired with a Program Advisor who will provide guidance through their journey to long-term resiliency. Through a needs assessment by phone, Program Advisors will facilitate customized support for each business that includes navigating available federal and provincial aid and access to Program Experts in Human Resources.

2. A digital resource hub featuring webinars, information bulletins, and additional resources specific to the needs of BC’s tourism businesses.

We encourage you to visit to learn more and register for the program if your business requires support navigating the resources available.

The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region, managed by Destination BC, is committed to supporting the survival of all tourism businesses in BC and is working with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture, and tourism partners to deliver the BC Tourism Resiliency Program.

For even more resources, tools, and information for small business owners and entrepreneurs, visit Destination BC’s Learning Centre, or the provincial government resources page.
