The Tourism Association of Vancouver Island (dba 4VI)

Formed more than six decades ago, the Tourism Association of Vancouver Island is the official non-profit society of 4VI, which operates as a social enterprise. 

We are responsible to our stakeholders and rightsholders – the more than 870,000 people that call the Vancouver Island Region home – through a Board of Directors. 

The volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of tourism business owners and senior managers from across the Vancouver Island Region. We are grateful for the time and expertise that these committed individuals bring to the organization.
