History

The Dept. of Travel Industry was established in 1967 (SBC 1967, c. 18). The purpose of the Dept. of Travel Industry was to promote British Columbia as a travel destination, and support tourism industry. The department did this through the staffing of information offices, the publication of Beautiful BC Magazine, and supporting the development of the tourism industry. The Dept. of Travel Industry was originally organized into the Travel Division, Photographic Branch (later to become the Film and Photographic Branch), and California and London tourist trade representative offices. In 1971, the department added a Community Recreation Branch. In 1975, the department was replaced by the Dept. of Recreation and Tourism (SBC 1976, c. 18).
