The Tourism and Culture Capital Program preserves and enhances Ontario's investment in tourism and cultural infrastructure.
The Ministry is currently involved in the delivery of the Recreational Infrastructure Canada Program in Ontario (RInC) - a $390 million federal/provincial infrastructure program intended to provide timely, targeted economic stimulus through investments in existing recreational infrastructure. The RInC Initiative is expected to be completed by March 31, 2011 and the federal/provincial agreement governing RInC is expected to end by June 30, 2011.
The Ministry provides capital repair and rehabilitation funding to 13 of its 21 tourism and cultural agencies and attractions. This funding enables the Ministry’s agencies and attractions to undertake repair and rehabilitation of existing infrastructure including: renovations, building code upgrades, health and safety improvements and statutory/regulatory compliance, to help them remain competitive and enhance the visitor experience.
The Ministry also manages the infrastructure development commitments of the province’s $300 million capital infrastructure initiative - the Sports, Culture Tourism Partnership Program.
