Goodbye and Good Luck!

For over 12 years, LinkBC and our predecessors (the BC Centres for Tourism & Hospitality Leadership and Innovation) have served a vital role in enhancing professionalism in BC's tourism industry by creating and strengthening connections between post-secondary adventure, tourism, hospitality, and culinary students, graduates, and faculty, and the industry.

As our final year comes to an end, we’d like to thank the many people who have contributed to our success: Terry Hood; Tim Schoahs; Casey Dorin; Jonathan Rouse; Geoff Bird; Chris Bottrill; Brian White; Adrian Dhalla; Patti Smolen; Terry Bubb; and Morgan Westcott. We'd also like to convey our appreciation to Destination BC/BC Ministry of Tourism and our champions Rick Lemon, Susan Rybar, Margaret McCormick, and Richard Lewis. Finally, we'd like to acknowledge the hundreds of instructors and students across BC without whom our important work would not have been possible.

BC’s tourism industry has recognized the value of our programs and that’s why go2HR will be taking over key initiatives including the Student Case Competition, Student-Industry Rendezvous, the Orange Book of Success career planning guide, partnering with industry on student financial awards, and an enhanced training and education directory.

If you’re a BC tourism instructor or program looking to connect with others, our Facebook page is still active: https://www.facebook.com/LinkBC/

We wish all the programs in our network continued success. Let’s keep working to make BC a global leader in tourism and hospitality education!
