Tourism Business Opportunities

Cruise Ships - Tourism Offerings

Beginning in 2023, various cruise lines will be including the Rossport area as part of their scheduled cruise offerings along the North Shore of Lake Superior.  This is part of a developing and growing "adventure/expedition" cruise industry in Canada.   

There are opportunities to provide tourism related experiences for cruise ship passengers.

The opportunities for entrepreneurs are being coordinated through the Cruise Ship Readiness Steering Committee which is led by Suzanne Kukko with consulting support from Pat Forrest of Forrest Marketing.  

Suzanne is the Lake Superior North Shore Tourism Coordinator with Superior Country.  

The opportunities to provide services are closely aligned with the tourism strategy as outlined in the North Shore Tourism Strategy.

The Great Lakes Cruise Association has produced a video which provides an overview of the opportunities for cruise passengers and the tourism industry that is providing services to this market segment.  Click here to read the media release and click here to view the video.
