The Tourism and Coastal Development Working Group will seek to explore the nature and implications of coastal development and coastal tourism from various perspectives. Recently, the appeal of coastal areas for tourism has grown rapidly and tourism has become part of the coastal economy along the coasts of all three of Canada’s oceans. The resources that draw tourists to the coast are increasingly also drawing second-home owners and more permanent migrants to the West and East coasts, with implications felt in terms of social, economic and environmental transformations in coastal areas. These topics will be examined with particular emphasis on the nature of resource conflict and related issues of planning, management and institutional response.
