Tourism Communities

The Municipality of Jasper is working collaboratively with the towns of Banff and Canmore to demonstrate the economic impact and funding requirements of tourism-based communities in Alberta.

While tourism benefits the provincial economy, Jasper local taxpayers, through their property taxes, cover the costs of providing services to 2,300,000 visitors annually. Banff, Canmore and Jasper are asking for the financial tools to help maintain and grow the significant financial benefit the three communities generate to the provincial and federal governments.
