Restrictions on non-essential travel to the COVID-19 health pandemic have had a significant impact on tourism businesses in Nova Scotia and around the world. Tourism Nova Scotia and Digital Nova Scotia (DNS) have partnered to offer training and information to support tourism businesses and organizations with adapting to the evolving tourism environment, enhancing quality and competitiveness, and preparing to welcome visitors when the time is right.

This webinar series offers practical information attendees can use to steer their businesses through COVID-19 and then rebuild and recover following the pandemic. These webinars are also open to DNS members.

On Thursday April 23, the first webinar, E-Commerce: Adding Shopify To Your Website to Maximize Sales was delivered by Able Sense in partnership with Tourism Nova Scotia and Digital Nova Scotia. Participants learned how Shopify works, and how to integrate the e-commerce tool as a sales channel for their businesses.
