About

Banff Heritage Tourism has evolved through the efforts of the community to develop the Heritage Tourism Strategy included in the 1996 Banff - Bow Valley Study and added to the 1998 Banff National Park Management Plan. In 2002, Banff Heritage Tourism was created as a separate organization to implement the strategy. The sustainability of the organization would not be possible without the continuing support of the following partners:

  • Banff Lake Louise Tourism
  • Town of Banff
  • Parks Canada

Banff Heritage Tourism is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who have dedicated themselves to advancing the principles and objectives of the organization.
