Canadian Destinations Leadership Council

Destinations International’s Canadian Destinations Leadership Council is comprised of destination organization executives from across Canada. The Council provides a forum for Canadian destination organization executives to meet regularly throughout the year to coordinate on key industry issues including advocacy, resourcing, policy, and marketing.

The Council represents Canadian membership within Destinations International and provides strategic guidance to the Association and recommendations for how the Association can best serve its Canadian members. This includes developing content and programs that are valuable to Canadian destination organizations.

The Council was formed in 2021 following the dissolution of the Destination Marketing Association of Canada (DMAC). Membership in the Canadian Destinations Leadership Council is open to any Canadian destination organization that is a member of Destinations International.
