A meeting was held on November 24, 1994 about the potential for Port Blandford to become a resort town. The Provincial Department of Tourism made a presentation on Adventure & Cultural Tourism, highlighting tourism opportunities and the level of service expected by international travellers.

These discussions would continue into 1995, leading to a public meeting on September 18, 1995 with 41 people in attendance to discuss the potential for tourism in Port Blandford.
