TIAM Representatives Meet with Honourable Glen Simard

On December 13, 2023, TIAM Acting Board Members were pleased to meet with the Honourable Glen Simard, Minister of Sport, Culture, Heritage, and Tourism. This was a valuable opportunity to build a relationship with new Minister Glen Simard and his Department. It was an important opening to further discuss our industry’s priorities as identified by our members.
