    Canada, You Have My Heart

    Tourism in Canada means jobs, and not just any job - the opportunities range from working in a fast food outlet while going to school, to attending post secondary educational institutes to learn hotel management, resort development to food and beverage operations which might even include becoming Canada's next top Chef!

    Then there is marketing, communications and sales leading to masters programs in business and culture.

    Here are some of the facts, presented in a video by Tourism Canada.  Be inspired. Please share it with a young person who is wondering where they should go to further their studies, or work and build a career from the bottom up.

    It's an incredible industry from which to carve out a profession.  Especially true if you like being with people - with the front of the house having the most draw ... and drama - although number crunchers (accountants, auditors) make it all work too, offering a highly respected role in every facet of tourism from hotels, to resorts, to restaurants and more.

    Shaw TV's The Rush With Fiona Forbes Closes Out 2013 With Great BC Getaways

    I know, we hear continually how lucky we are to be living here on the utterly gorgeous west coast of Canada.  And I hear it all the time when I travel internationally.  People LOVE British Columbia!

    No wonder,  as while the weather can be if-y some seasons, overall, we live in a moderate climate that is outrageously splendid when the sun shines, any time of the year. 

    2013 brought some very special moments travelling around BC. Join me as I share three perennial favourites that are wonderful to visit any time of the year!
