TOURISM PROGRAM - VOTE 3802

The Tourism Program seeks to increase investment in Ontario's tourism industry by developing appropriate tools to foster the right business climate. Activities include providing the industry with strategic information and analysis, facilitating partnerships to strengthen competitiveness and improve service quality, and working with the industry stakeholders and other ministries to identify tourism development opportunities. The Program also markets Ontario as a year-round world-class travel destination, operates key tourism information centres across Ontario, and manages provincially owned tourism attractions and convention centres.
