Working for Northern Ontario's Tourism Industry

Welcome to the web site of Tourism Northern Ontario (TNO), your resource for research, news and a wealth of other information on tourism in the North.  We encourage you to visit our site often as we update information regularly. 

TNO is one of 13 Regional Tourism Organizations (RTOs) funded by the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, stemming from recommendations in the 2009 report, Discovering Ontario: a report on the future of tourism.  Each RTO is independent, industry-led and not-for-profit and each provides leadership and coordination to support competitive and sustainable tourism regions. TNO coordinates, aligns and invests in sub-regional programs and leads in identified pan-northern management functions; co-ordination of marketing, product development, workforce and industry training and investment attraction with the ultimate goal of significantly increasing tourism revenues in Northern Ontario.  Increased visitation and yield will be achieved by delivering programs designed to enhance existing tourism products and developing new tourism opportunities for the North.

TNO is by far the largest tourism region in terms of its size -  larger than all of the other regional tourism organizations combined.  In broad terms, TNO stretches from the Manitoba border to the Quebec border, north to Hudson Bay and James Bay and south to the Minnesota and Michigan borders. TNO is also the second largest in expenditures with its 2015-16 budget totaling $5,733,000.  This past year TNO was also able to leverage $1.5 million in partnership dollars based on a $605,000 partnership allocation from the Ministry.
