The mission of the Nova Scotia Tourism Human Resource Council is to develop a skilled and professional workforce for the Nova Scotia tourism sector.
The Nova Scotia Tourism Human Resource Council (NSTHRC) was established in 1989 to address labour market issues within the tourism sector in Nova Scotia. The Council is a provincial not-for-profit organization that facilitates and coordinates human resources development activities which support a competitive and sustainable Nova Scotia tourism sector.
In addition to being a provincial sector council, NSTHRC is one of the founding members of the Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council. As a division of the Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia (TIANS), the Council is directed by sector leaders representing sector and regional industry associations, government agencies, educators and industry at large.
The Nova Scotia Tourism Human Resource Council has developed a Tourism Labour Market Plan – Towards a New Direction – Putting People First. This plan identifies issues and challenges and provides key solutions to ensure the development of a stable and professional workforce for the Nova Scotia Tourism Industry.
