Sunset in Steveston


We are business leaders and tourism experts working together to make our city shine.


Tourism Richmond’s Tourism Ambassadors play an integral role in the level of service offered in our destination. They make a positive difference in the way visitors experience Richmond and British Columbia. Our knowledgeable Tourism Ambassadors share their wonderful energy, passion, and knowledge with visitors from the world over at the Visitor Centre in Steveston 364 days of the year, as well as at the stand-alone kiosk on Bayview Street, conventions, events, and high-traffic tourist areas throughout Richmond.

Now is your chance to share the love of your home town with visitors. We’re looking for friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable volunteers to give a warm Richmond welcome to visitors year-round.

Tourism Ambassadors will provide information about upcoming events in the area and show visitors why Richmond is one of the best places in the world to visit.
