Vancouver Island Tourism is unquestionably on the rise. As a new tourism experience, the Malahat Skywalk will support the island economy in numerous ways. We will celebrate the unique area and incorporate as much local flavour into the project as possible.
Benefits to the Surrounding Communities
It will give locals a reason to staycation, a great experience for visiting friends and family who will spend more money in their home community. It will encourage visitors to return or extend their stay. It will provide compelling stories and amazing photo opportunities for travel writers, online forums, and social media sites, attracting travellers to Vancouver Island. It will give road trippers en route up and down the island the impetus to spend a night rather than simply passing through. It will create employment at the Malahat Skywalk itself, and gives rise to other jobs that result from economic spinoff to local hotels, artisans, brewpubs, and cafés.
We estimate that Malahat Skywalk will create approximately 100 jobs during the construction and between 20 to 50 jobs during operation.
The Malahat Skywalk project has begun and we look forward to make a positive impact on the community and help to diversify the economy. We are committed to an open, collaborative process. For updates on construction, job opportunities or general information continue to monitor this website.
