Business Development

One of the three pillars of the Shared Legacy Partnership is contributing to our community’s economy in a responsible and sustainable manner by encouraging tourism within our unique nature and ecosystem in the RM of Stuartburn.

The tall-grass prairie is one of the most endangered habitats on the planet, existing in less than one per cent of the range they used to occupy. Because they’re so rare, they’re full of species that are found almost nowhere else on the planet. That’s a unique experience that many people would be interested to explore.

Experiential Tourism Program

Shared Legacy partner, Sunrise Corner Tourism, offers facilitation services to business owners and non-profits to develop unique, sustainable and hands-on tourism experiences. This two-phased training program to help build and enhance tourism in Eastern Manitoba was developed by Eastman Tourism Association and its facilitators throughout the Eastman Region.

Experiential tourism is a form of tourism in which people focus on experiencing a particular place by actively and meaningfully engaging with its history, people, culture, food and environment. Experiential tourism connects visitors with the essence of a place and its people. It engages guests in a series of memorable travel adventures, revealed over time, that are inherently personal, engage the senses, and make connections on an emotional, physical, spiritual, or intellectual level. What could be more experiential than the unique and endangered tall-grass prairie.

Any tourism business or non-profit agency in Eastern Manitoba with a unique and engaging story to tell is invited to contact Sunrise Corner Tourism to discuss your idea and learn if you’re eligible to apply. Experiences will be thoughtfully created and brought to market over a time span of 18 months. Program participants will gain valuable experiential tourism knowledge and a sought-after and profitable experience that visitors can enjoy for years to come.
