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.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
