Brian Cant is a highly committed travel and tourism public relations specialist. With the Tartan Group, Brian has worked in tourism media relations for over two years, conducting media outreach, attending to media itineraries, and generally doing all that he can to ensure journalists that Tartan works with have what they need to tell the client story across traditional and digital channels. With an eye to detail, Brian is the Tartan touch stone to story creation.
Inspired by his summer job guiding visitors through the underground mine at the Rossland Museum in the Kootenays, Brian’s career has focused on the travel industry; he has worked with both Tourism Victoria and Tourism British Columbia.
Brian’s passion is sharing his love of travel and the opportunities that travel creates to educate and build understanding. Joining Tartan Group in 2011 as senior communications coordinator, Brian works with Tartan Group clients to develop and deliver their stories to the right media outlets (both print and digital) for maximum exposure.
Brian holds a BA in History and Geography as well as a Diploma in Public Relations (Dipl PR) from the University of Victoria where he is a member of the UVic Alumni Association Board of Directors.
Brian was first put on skis by his dad at the age of 18 months and has never looked back; when he’s not sharing his travel and tourism experiences you’ll find him looking for good, fast turns around the mountains of British Columbia.
