As part of the agenda in Canada, officials of the state agency, in coordination with Yucatan Medical Services and the Canadian Healthcare Council (CEHC) showcased the benefits that the Yucatan has to offer before hundreds of people, including medical and dental facilitators, potential future residents, etc.
The SEFOTUR delegation also toured the cities of Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal, where medical competitive features of the state of Yucatan along with travel packages with integrated medical and dental procedures were presented to representatives from universities, travel agencies, retirees associations, specialized health insurance centers and human resource managers from different companies.
The sessions were complemented by meetings with the Mexico Tourism Board of Toronto (CPTM), and the Office of Economic Affairs and Tourism of the Embassy of Spain in Ottawa, which aimed to strengthen coordinated efforts to promote the Yucatán and increase the interest of this important segment.
