WestJet on Tuesday (Dec. 6) announced an agreement with Indigenous Tourism Alberta (ITA) to bolster support for Indigenous travel and tourism businesses and create employment opportunities for Indigenous Canadians as the airline grows its global presence.
The announcement was commemorated by an official signing of a memorandum of understanding at ITA’s annual Gathering, which welcomed 300 travel and tourism partners and government representatives on Treaty 6, Métis Region 4, in Edmonton Alberta.
“We are grateful to build upon our meaningful partnership and continued collaboration with ITA as we work together to foster important opportunities for Indigenous travel and tourism businesses and entrepreneurs right here in our home province,” said Angela Avery, WestJet Group’s executive vice-president and chief people, corporate and sustainability officer.
