The Niagara Parks Commission Responsible Tourism

Responsible Tourism is something the Niagara Parks Commission practices every day. As part of our overall mission, we are tasked with the responsibility of preserving and enhancing the beauty of the Falls and the surrounding Niagara River Corridor, which we have done so proudly for over 125 years. It is also about sharing our experiences with others; educating the public on what we do and partnering with other world-renowned cultural and tourism destinations to promote the benefits of tourism and how it has allowed us to preserve and enhance these great treasures for future generations. Tourism and preservation need not be mutually exclusive concepts. In our case, one has allowed the other to take place. People need to be educated to this fact, NPC has met with several other tourism and government organizations to explain our operations and promote our version of responsible tourism which is something we will continue to do.
