TOURISM CAPITAL PROGRAM - VOTE 3804

The Tourism Capital Program preserves and enhances Ontario's investment in tourism infrastructure. The Ministry manages the infrastructure development commitments of the province's $300 million, five-year capital infrastructure initiative - the Sports, Culture and Tourism Partnership program. Launched in 2001, the Sports, Culture and Tourism Partnership program has been extended to 2009. In addition, the ministry is responsible for rehabilitating provincially owned and operated tourism assets which serve as economic catalysts. The funding to the Ministry's agencies, attractions and convention centres allows them to undertake repairs and rehabilitation of existing infrastructure, including such things as renovations, repairs, equipment replacement, and statutory/regulatory compliance (e.g. building code changes), to help them meet health and safety standards, maintain visitor appeal, and remain competitive.
