Growing Tourism

Community Partners

The Heritage Inn Hotels are an independent chain of full-service hotels located across western Canada, proudly celebrating over forty years of service. The hotel chain has grown to include hotels in Brooks, Cranbrook, High River, Moose Jaw, Pincher Creek, Saskatoon and Taber.  The ownership, management and staff strongly believe in the value of investing in our communities to encourage out of town visitation, destination development and long-term sustainable growth. 

The Canadian Destinations Group Limited (o/a CDGL) is a non‐profit organization created in 2011 by members of the Heritage Inn Hotels with the goal to generate interest in the community by investing in marketing efforts, regional programming and partnerships aimed at promoting the community as a ‘destination’ for tourism and diversify year-round tourism.

We take pride in being able to encourage both local and out-of-town attendance to through developing partnerships and collaborating with organizations.  We continue to seek new opportunities to grow our involvement in the communities we serve; our organization and hotels can offer your local event, attraction, community group or organization a range of opportunities to help improve the experience for those involved and ultimately grow tourism and the community as a destination. 

We look forward to new partnership opportunities and growing existing relationships as we explore ways to continue our involvement in the communities we proudly serve.  For all inquires please email
