Many areas and communities throughout the province are enhancing economic diversification through effective tourism planning and development. See the sections below for more information about Community Tourism Planning and Destination Area Development.
Community Tourism Planning
Saskatchewan communities are increasingly turning to tourism as an opportunity for economic diversification and new jobs. The retention of businesses and services in many communities depends more and more upon visitor spending. Tourism Saskatchewan has developed the Community Tourism Planning Guide to help community leaders direct and focus tourism planning capabilities at the community and district level. This guide has been updated for 2014.
25 cities, towns, villages and First Nations across Saskatchewan have completed Community Tourism Plans since 2005. A number of these communities are prepared to share their Community Tourism Plans upon request.

Destination Area Development
Tourism Destination Areas are developed when communities, attractions, businesses and residents collaborate to increase tourism traffic to their region.
