In 2013-14, the Ontario Ministry of Tourism Culture and Sport announced its partnership program with Regional Tourism Organizations (RTO’s). For the past two years, TNO has reached out to its sub-regions to help to identify potential partnerships 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 $1.5 million in resource. To view the 2015-16 Partnership Program backgrounder and learn more about the application process, please contact your sub-region.
