In 2013-14, the Ontario Ministry of Tourism Culture and Sport announced its partnership program with Regional Tourism Organizations (RTO’s). Since then , TNO has reached out to potential industry partners to help to identify joint projects that would align with the Province’s and TNO’s mandate by:
· Enhancing existing products or creating new products.
· Extending the number, value or duration of visits to the region.
· Addressing issues around workforce development and industry training and investment attraction.
The partnership program has enabled TNO to undertake a wide range of innovative tourism initiatives with a diverse group of partners and to leverage an additional $10 million in resources.
