Message from
The President
A transition term best defines the period since May 2008, the
year I was elected President of TIANB. In taking office, my goal
as President was to strengthen the organization so as to make it
relevant to the industry we represent and to the members entrusting their continued support of the organization. In achieving this,
we started by engaging in a complete governance review in order
to provide us with a blueprint of what we needed to adjust. To this,
many other areas were affected, from by-laws to organizational
policies and procedures, to the way we do business every day. With
a committed Board of Directors, we were able to focus on three
main priorities, hence providing a more tactical approach to the issues facing our industry today and for
the future.
Faced with economic uncertainty and context that stimulates creative ways to navigate the troubled waters,
the status quo is not an option. The adage takes on a whole new meaning. Even though we all share the
agony in the background, the professionalism, determination and perseverance of all operators prevails
at the forefront when visitors call. In our collective search for excellence, the onus is upon us all to strive
to be ahead of the transformation curve occurring throughout the world. With strong partnerships and a
stronger than ever collaboration from all players, the agitated waters will settle, making way for brighter
days ahead.
Your continued support of TIANB is what energises the dedicated staff we have at the office and the many
volunteers that take time from their busy schedules to be involved. I would like to extend my greatest
appreciation for the individuals that have become involved with the Board of Directors and on the many
committees. I extend my sincere gratitude to the Directors that have decided to step down and I look
forward to working with the new Board in order to continue our quest towards excellence.

A Word from
The Executive Director
In the last year, TIANB has gone through tremendous efforts in
order to better serve its membership. Now equipped with a
blueprint, the result of an extensive Governance Review, we are
more engaged than ever to embark on the journey that will lead
us all to success.
Like many of your tourism operations, the association world is
going through some fundamental changes. Low expectation,
membership by habit and low annual dues contribute to many
businesses taking a defensive approach to goals and varied
operations. The collective impact is a de facto strategy based on sustaining membership and providing
a reason to stay with the association. Net renewal rate of membership is the best indicator of member
approval and support under the status quo, if and only if the association determines the status quo
to be acceptable.
We entered the governance review process one year ago after it was determined that the status quo was
not acceptable. TIANB wants and deserves more. We want to have society’s recognition; we want to
attract the best volunteer leaders in the industry; we want our governance to be consistently effective;
we want to be a model of communications excellence and we want our definition of success to be based
not just on existence but on real achievement.
2009 Marks my 10th year as Executive Director of TIANB. Over the years, I have had the privilege of
working alongside great people and my greatest satisfaction every day is going home with a feeling of
accomplishment. 2009 Marks a new page in the history book of TIANB and I am very grateful for having
a team of people to assist me in ensuring TIANB stays ahead of the curve, and ahead of the challenges.
I would like to extend my gratitude to Beth, Catherine, Lynn, Melynda, Sheila and Yvan, the TIANB team,
as well as Ann, our lead trainer, for their engagement and determination to continuing our collective
quest for success. Thank you to the Board of Directors for their support and of course, to you the ever
present and growing membership for your commitment to TIANB throughout the year.
On behalf of staff, I wish you all a prosperous 2009 season and I look forward to serving you for many
more years.

Working Better Together
Summary of the Governance Review
After 25 years of existence, the Board of Directors
of TIANB engaged in a process to optimize the
mandate, governance structure and management
processes of TIANB.
Following the research and situation analysis phase
of the project by Forerunner Creative and Tourism
Strategies Ltd, it became clear that TIANB’s challenges for the future relate less to shortcomings in
governance and more to shortcomings in relevance
to the tourism stakeholders of New Brunswick.
Twenty two (22) interviews were conducted in
French and fifteen (15) were conducted in English. The interview process involved a new way for
TIANB to look at the geography breakdown of New
Most stakeholders indicated that they were pleased
that the Board of Directors of TIANB had decided
to undertake a review of its governance model.
From their perspective, it is an indication that
someone has finally realized that the status quo is
not an option and that this analysis has the potential to lead to improvements on many fronts.
Twenty seven (27) recommendations were put
forward by the consultant. These recommendations
were converted into an action plan which TIANB
will follow in order to heighten the association’s
relevance to industry.
TIANB in general:
• Increase relevance of TIANB within industry;
• Enhance communication to stakeholders
• Establish clear channels of communications,
Board, Members, Staff, Partners
• Implement governance structures, process
and policies.
TIANBAnnualReportENG.indd 5
The Board of Directors:
• Facilitate interaction between Board and
• Establish guidelines for engaging commitment
of Board members
• Establish governing structure, process and
policies for Board.
The President:
• Assume a greater responsibility of priority file
• Assume greater responsibility for TIANB
public image
• Assume greater responsibility for Pan
Atlantic Committee
• Ensure the implementation of structured
meeting processes
• Assume greater responsibility for
performance evaluation of Executive Director.
The Executive Director:
• Ensure greater responsibility for Priority file
• Ensure greater visibility within the membership
• Implement clear reporting processes and
policy regarding the affairs of TIANB
• Develop required policies and
procedures for the organization
• Provide training programs and projects
analyses and recommendation to Board.
An Executive Summary Report of our
Governance Review is available on our
website at www.tianb.com.

Enhancing our Communications
Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick
TIANB plays a critical role in enabling the New
Brunswick tourism industry to speak with a single
voice on the most pressing issues affecting the
industry. In order to effectively fulfill this role,
TIANB must be constantly in direct communication
with its members and the industry at large. In 2008
TIANB increased the frequency of its e-messages,
sending some 40 messages and newsletters to the
members throughout the year. In terms of meetings, we participated in several RTA meetings, in
addition to holding six full-day Board meetings and
several shorter, ad hoc Board meetings.
ED Tour of the province
One of the 27 recommendations resulting from the
Governance review was for our Executive Director, Réal Robichaud, to launch a TIANB Breakfast
Roundtable initiative.
These roundtables are meant to allow any and all
issues to be aired - a chance to mine out issues
at the grass roots level. The tour which began in
October 2008 saw discussion sessions take place
in Edmundston, Saint John, the Acadian Peninsula
(Tracadie-Sheila), Campbellton, Miramichi and
Bathurst. More sessions will take place in Moncton, Albert County, Charlotte County, Campobello,
Grand Manan, Woodstock and Fredericton.
Making our Voice Heard
Media, Public and Government Relations
TIANB would not be able to effectively influence
positive changes for the tourism industry without
having a strategy and the tools for communicating
the industry’s interests, successes and priorities to
the public.
In 2008, TIANB took part in more than 50 interviews across the province (and even in the US)
with newspapers as well as radio and TV stations.
We issued 22 press releases on a variety of topics
ranging from commenting on the tourism capital
budget to congratulating TIAC award winners and
promoting our training programs.
Lobbying efforts carried out in
2008 include:
Marine Liability Act – The Government of Canada
made changes to Part IV of the Act which had
an impact on liability insurance for water-based
activities. Bill C-7 was introduced to the House
of Commons and read for the 1st time on January
29th, 2009. It was debated and read a second and
third time on February 25 and March 30, 2009.
On March 30th it was referred to the Standing
Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities. TIANB started lobbying in 2000 for the
modification of the Act so as to allow for the use
of responsibility waivers, which was used by all
water-based operations as a risk management tool.
The amendment to the Act allows for this again.
Credit Card Merchant Transaction Fees and interchange Rates – TIANB provided a letter of support to Senator Pierrette Ringuette for her motion
requesting that the Standing Senate Committee on
Banking Trade and Commerce examine the interchange rates for credit card transactions and the
related issue of debit card transaction rates. Work
TIANBAnnualReportENG.indd 6
5/11/09 3:09:40 PM
on this issue by the Senate Committee started on
March 3, 2009. The main focus, a study of the
credit and debit card systems in Canada and their
relative rates and fees, in particular for businesses
and consumers.
Tourism & Parks Strategic plan – TIANB met with
the Department of Tourism and Parks on many
occasions to assist in developing the Department’s
strategic plan.
ACOA-Tourism Strategic Plan – TIANB met with
Tourism Atlantic in developing the Strategic Plan
for the Atlantic tourism industry.
Government of Canada Marquee Events funding
program – TIANB as a member of the Provincial
and Territorial Tourism Industry Association, a
Committee of TIAC, participated in proposing
criteria for the funding of festival and events in
Canada. The Funding program is managed by
Industry Canada.
NB Pre-budgetary consultations – TIANB was
invited to participate in the Provincial Government
Pre-Budgetary discussions.
Select Committee on Taxation review – TIANB
met with the Select Committee on Taxation Review
to speak against the proposed increase to the HST
and the proposed implementation of a carbon tax.
TIANB spoke in favour of reduced personal income
tax and corporate taxes. TIANB also proposed the
implementation of an enabling legislation for the
introduction of a Destination Marketing Fee.
Local Governance Review Commission – TIANB
met with Commissioner Jean-Guy Finn on the
introduction of an enabling legislation for the
collection of a Destination Marketing fee in New
Moving Forward through our Committees
Governance Review Committee – The Committee
was made up of the Board Executive Committee
who participated with the consultants from Forerunner Creative and Tourism Strategies Ltd in the
review of TIANB’s governance.
re-developed since the last one dates back to
2005. The Consumer profile has been a good tool
in assisting tourism operators in their business developments over the years and it was felt updated
results would be needed in the very near future.
By-law Review Committee – The Committee
developed a new set of by-laws for the Association.
The new by-laws as reviewed by the Committee and
legal counsel have been presented to and adopted
by the Board of Directors and will be presented for
ratification by the membership at the AGM on May
22, 2009.
DMF Working Committee – The DMF Committee met with local and regional organizations
that either have a voluntary DMF in place
(Bathurst, Miramichi, Saint John and StAndrews) or are interested in its implementation (Moncton, Fredericton, Edmundston). It was important to establish
the roles and goals of all and to present
a strategy in order to move forward.
A survey of DMF’s from around the
country was conducted and the results
will serve to assist in the Committee’s
future direction.
Marketing Committee – The Marketing Committee met with the Marketing Dept. of Tourism &
Parks to review various promotional and marketing
initiatives. So as to measure the success of various
campaigns, it was proposed by the Committee that
Tourism & Parks develop a benchmark in 2009 to
measure the successes of 2010 to 2012. It was also
proposed that a revised Consumer profile be

Offering more Training and
Professional Development for Better
Attraction, Retention and Productivity
Wow! Our program sales have increased by
17% over the last four years. A 10% increase in
2008-09 alone. The importance of all kinds of
certification and its positive effects on retaining staff and encouraging best
practices in customer service is clearly
recognized by the membership.
Toward a more Responsible and
Safer Food and Beverage
We included Food Safe to our canon of programs
this past year and it has been met with significant
popularity. In one year we have granted Food Safe
certification to 42 individuals and restaurants. With
risk management top of mind for so many operators these two programs Responsible Beverage and
Food Safe are the way to go. They have grown in
popularity over the last year. Responsible Beverage
alone had a sales growth of 212% in 2008-09. Reducing Insurance premiums is not the only stimulation for the growth. Good business practices and
again staff retention play a major role in choosing
this program.
The pinnacle credential for
tourism Professionals
We know that employee
retention can be arduous,
we also know that recognizing staff can be a sure fire
way of keeping them. emerit certification has been

past year have successfully completed their emerit
certification in many tourism operations like yours.

Providing youth with the tools
to hone their personal skills
Not only do we service our membership but we
offer Workplace Etiquette to NB High schools as
well. This half day workshop has been offered to
students since 2005 and provides an opportunity
to hone their personal skills prior to their “first”
job interview. In addition to that we include a presentation on “a career in tourism” to ensure their
interest is piqued in this career path. 86 keen students received this skills training over the past year.
Enhancing tourism
career awareness
Exclusive presentations were created and given
to Tourism Classes in Saint John and Peticodiac
High schools as well as the YMCA Fredericton
Job Search Strategy Group. The staff attended 3
High school career fairs where they encountered
2000 students in the Saint John, Quispamsis, and
Bathurst regions. We also participated in several
trade shows including the Chamber of Commerce
Expo in Fredericton, The Tri-City Mixer in Saint
John and The APEX show 2008 in
Setting the stage for

Resume writing. Numerous certifications are
eligible within the free course: Responsible
Beverage; Food Safe; SuperHost, Mature
Consumer; First Aid and CPR to name a few.
We continue to have successes with participant
employment this year. We can identify that from
April 2008 to April 2009 137 individuals were
employed from the RTW program. Check out the
resumes of the graduates on our website from
various locations in New Brunswick including
Edmundston, St. Stephen, Moncton, St. Isidore,
Saint John, Woodstock and Fredericton.
In an effort to encourage more participation by
Industry we secured partnerships in the form of
visits to the class and on-site property interviews.
The response to this kind of engagement is
measured by the vast knowledge gained by the
participants and the true networking opportunities
made available through real-life discussion with
industry stakeholders. Thank you to all who gave
their time to the classes of 2008-09 and especially
those who employed the graduates.
Hiring foreign workers contributes
in filling labour shortage
Like many other industries in Canada, the tourism sector is increasingly experiencing skill and
labour shortages. Each year, Canadian employers
hire thousands of foreign workers to help address
these shortages. Employing foreign workers can be
an essential part of a company’s business strategy.
Foreign workers can fill labour shortages in New
Brunswick and bring new skills and knowledge to
help the province’s economy grow. We can help
secure the labour market opinion for you the
industry and put you in touch with the skilled
assistance required for engaging in the process
of hiring a Temporary Foreign Worker.

for advanced managers and trainers. All materials
and the online learning tools were updated and
two new user-friendly modules created. Product
knowledge and testing centres for New Brunswick
cities, Islands of NB, Parks, Itinerary building and

specifically for senior managers and owner operators of tourism businesses seeking to envision and
embrace new innovative ways to improve their own
organization and be more profitable.
The Best Practice Missions
program is designed to
expose private sector operators and representatives of
sustainable tourism communities to successful tourism

exposure will stimulate the generation of new product ideas, improved practices in customer service,
innovative operational techniques, sound planning models and partnership opportunities for the
Atlantic tourism sector. In the past year 7 missions
have taken place throughout Canada and the US.

Sharing Successes through Enriching Gatherings
Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick
Atlantic Canada Showcase 2008, the largest
marketplace in our region, took place in Moncton,
New Brunswick, from October 6-9, 2008 inclusive.
With a new look, a revised schedule of events, and
a strong initiative to attract new buyers, ACS 2008
was a rewarding marketplace
for all who
51 Buyers
including 8 from the US and 3 from Britain contributed to the show to make buying decisions for
their future motorcoach and FIT tour programs.
Most either currently operate tours to Atlantic
Canada or are looking to extend their programs or
have expressed interest in adding Atlantic Canada
to their tour offerings. In addition, there were 105
Atlantic Canada seller companies (attractions, hotels, restaurants, transportation companies, DMO’s
etc.) promoting their products to tour operators
affording an excellent opportunity to network with
their fellow industry leaders. The future event takes
place in 2010 in Halifax.
Unique to last year was the addition of Savour
Food and Wine at the Delta Beauséjour in Moncton May 1, 2008. The show in partnership with
Atlantic Provinces Restaurant Association (APRA)
hosted 26 food purveyors and 25 beverage vendors.
Over 300 members of the public came to enjoy the
flavours from all over New Brunswick and experience the tastes of new beverages and vintages
available within the province. It was a terrific success by all accounts. It continues this year under
the same name hosted by APRA.
The 2008 Annual Conference held at the Ramada
Crystal Palace in Dieppe under the theme Tourism, Celebrating Who We Are, was a very rich
experience for the 155 people who took part in this
important industry gathering. Testimonials from
participants reflect the meaning of this extraordinary opportunity to learn, share, network and work
together to further develop our industry: “I want
to pass along my congratulations on an excellent
TIANB meeting. The content and speakers, organization, service were excellent. The best ever!!!
Well done to the team at TIANB.” “I just wanted to
send this note to congratulate you on a highly successful conference/industry gathering. The program
was excellent, the various speakers outstanding (I
took tons of notes during the various sessions!!)
and the meal functions were fantastic … everything
totally seamless and top notch. I truly believe all
delegates would have come away from the conference highly motivated.”
Comments like these act as stimulus to raise the
bar every year and provide the best content, speakers and opportunities to share information, ideas
and tools to make tourism the strong industry it
needs to be.

Our Members, Our Most Valuable Partners
Coming into 2008, we had 371 members throughout the province. Sixteen months later, we have
524. This 41% increase alone shows how important
tourism operators think it is to work together and
position ourselves as One Clear Stand, One Clear
Not only do our valuable members come from all
parts of the province, they also represent the five
industry sectors: Food and Beverage, Accommodations, Travel Services, Transportation and Recreation and Entertainment. This global representation provides TIANB with more strength, more
knowledge and more power!
Looking Ahead
In December 2008, the Board of Directors
adopted 3 priority files that would serve as
TIANB’s top 3 priorities during 2009. These
priorities are, in no specific order:
• The Tourism Marketing Levy (also called lodging
tax or visitor levy)
• The urgent need to increase resources for
product development
• The evaluation and response to Tourism
and Parks’ strategic planning exercise.
TIANBAnnualReportENG.indd 13
Everyone’s involvement in the new
Tourism Strategy will allow our industry
to aim for optimal efficiency that will
reflect positively on operators as well as
on the strength of our association. We are
convinced that working together towards a common goal will benefit the entire industry!
