Introduction:

Congratulations! After a grueling interview process, you have been selected by the Canadian Department of Tourism to develop an ad campaign for a province of Canada. You will be developing an ad campaign that includes a brochure, print ad or a commercial. If your ad campaign is approved, you will be promoted to a new position as the Commissioner of Canadian Tourism! 


The Task:

As a member of the Canadian Advertisement Team, you will be working with a group of 2 – 3 students. Each group member will be responsible for specific tasks that will help the group achieve its final product. As a group, you will discuss the responsibilities of each group member and submit a proposal to your teacher. Your proposal will list each group member and what they will do to contribute to the final product.

The following are some questions/topics you must address in your project and presentation:

• Describe the geography of your province. What land features make your province unique? How does the geography of your province impact the culture and everyday lives of its inhabitants?


• What is the climate of your province? How does the climate impact residents as well as tourists to the area? Does the climate lend itself to any special sports or activities for visitors to participate in during their visit?


• What festivals and cultural attractions are unique to your province? Why should tourist visit your province? Why is your province special? What unique historical sights and tourist attractions can be enjoyed in your province?


• Describe the economy in your province. What types of businesses are most profitable in that area? Why are certain businesses particularly profitable or not profitable?

 

 

The Process:

Create 8 – 10 research cards that are organized by subtopic. These cards should include research that is pertinent to your province and that will be included in your brochure, poster or commercial.
