Scope and content

The series consists of both inbound and outbound executive correspondence created by Tourism BC. The records were largely created by Rick Lemon (Vice President, Visitor Experiences) and Rod Harris (President and CEO, Tourism BC). The series also includes one folder of other executive correspondence written by a number of other Tourism BC employees. The correspondence was created between 1999 and 2005, and is arranged first by writer and then chronologically by date. Correspondence packages consist of outbound Tourism BC correspondence, as well as either a Ministry routing slip with a brief description of the original letter, or a copy of the original incoming correspondence itself. Other relevant inter-ministerial correspondence may also be included in some cases.

The majority of correspondence deals with complaints from visitors to the province, but also includes some requests for promotional or informational material, or complaints or questions from tourism operators themselves. In most cases, inbound correspondence was referred to either the Vice President of Visitor Experiences, or the President of Tourism BC himself, although lesser matters were also routed to other employees.

The series is covered by ARCS 280-30 (Executive correspondence referral replies).
