The tourism authorities in Canada have come out with highly innovative and inclusive business models to cater to all segments of travellers. This includes Aboriginal, Culinary and LGBT versions. However, one area that ought to be explored, and much ignored as of now, is Francophone tourism. Whatever exists of this form, can only be observed within the boundaries of the French- speaking state of Quebec. French is spoken by around two- hundred and seventy million people around the world, so this presents a massive opportunity to Canada, well beyond Quebec alone. As per a report by the Economic Counseil, the non- Quebec contribution to Francophone Tourism stood at nearly eight billion dollars in 2016. This accounts for over one- hundred and twenty thousand direct tourism jobs. Experts suggest, that countrywide the policy of having two official languages needs to be adopted.
