OTTAWA — Last week, the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, Mélanie Joly, announced the appointment of Liza Frulla as Chair of the Board of Directors of Destination Canada.
“We know the tremendous contribution of the tourism sector to our communities, large and small.

Her wealth of experience will truly be an asset that will help steer Destination Canada throughout the recovery of Canada’s visitor economy.”
