Thirty-four exceptional participants from across Atlantic Canada graduated from the first ACTivate Program in partnership with the Gros Morne Institute for Sustainable Tourism (GMIST).

The program brings an asset-based and community-driven approach to tourism – building on existing knowledge, skills, and strengths within communities to enhance community wellbeing.  

“The program builds on the belief that a good place to live is also a good place to visit.”

Participants from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Ontario completed the five-month program which featured a series of online sessions, as well as four days of intensive in-person learning in Gros Morne, NL, before returning to their home communities to put their learnings into action.
