For many years Community Futures North Central Development was the coordinating partner for Tourism North Manitoba, a regional association focused on stimulating the tourism sector north of the 53rd parallel.  

Very recently, a strategy process was led by a stakeholder steering committe supported by Travel Manitoba and Tourism North.  The result of this process is the 2017-2022 Northern Manitoba Tourism Strategy.  Strategic priorities identified in this process fell into 5 areas:

  1. Organization and Communications
  2. Tourism Marketing
  3. Tourism Product and Experience Development
  4. Infrastructure Enhancement and Development
  5. Policy and Regulations
As a pilot project, Travel MB has hired a consultant to carry out regional efforts.  

Community Futures North Central Development will continue to participate on a Steering Committee which will guide tourism efforts in the north.
