The Salt Spring Island Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that we have become Canada’s first Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centre to become accredited members of Green Tourism Canada.

Our “silver” accreditation was made official on April 19th.  We are proud to be working within this program to show our commitment to environmental sustainability and to promote Salt Spring Island’s reputation as an eco-friendly destination where business and nature work together in harmony!

“We are thrilled to bring on our first Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centre in Canada” says Lindsay Eason, Program Director of Green Tourism Canada.  “The Salt Spring Chamber has set an example not only for other Chamber and Visitor Centres across the country but for tourism businesses as well.  They are literally ‘walking the talk’ by focusing on their sustainability performance, and have taken a leadership role for other business on the island to follow, helping to boost sustainable tourism on Salt Spring Island.”
