As the city’s tourism industry takes a significant hit, Tourism Calgary announced that 60 per cent of its staff will be temporarily laid off while the remaining staff will receive a pay cut.
Tourism has effectively come to a halt due to the international spread of COVID-19 and Tourism Calgary said in a release Thursday that they are not immune from the consequences. With a drop in funding, they made the decision to temporarily lay off 60 per cent of their staff, effective at the beginning of April, and reduce wages for the remaining 40 per cent.
