This project has created a unique, cost-effective, and self-sustaining marketing program that is attracting significant tourism dollars to Alberta's north. The program has developed partnerships between the Peace Region's tourism businesses and local governments. The GeoTourism program, based in Grimshaw, will create a series of field guides to describe +800 tourist sites such as museums, forts and trading posts, ghost towns, historical churches, community landmarks, and Aboriginal sites.
