Through the Celebrate Ontario 2014 program, the province is helping five festivals and events in Simcoe County that celebrate the region’s diversity, heritage and culture, while enhancing the visitor experience and increasing attendance.
Ontario is recognizing top amateur athletes, para-athletes, coaches, volunteers and sponsors whose outstanding achievements in both national and international arenas have contributed to athletic excellence in 2013.
This year marks five years since the Ontario government released the Tourism Competitiveness Study Report, Discovering Ontario: A Report on the Future of Tourism. The Ministry and tourism industry partners have worked together to advance the recommendations in the report and have made significant accomplishments in many areas. While the ministry regularly tracks and summarizes major achievements and progress on the report’s 20 recommendations, we believe it would be valuable to obtain tourism partners’ perspective on implementation progress.
The Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) has agreed to lead a stakeholder review of the implementation progress of the recommendations from the Discovering Ontario report, including engagement with industry partners and the establishment of tourism sector priorities for the future. TIAO will be reaching out to tourism stakeholders shortly to provide additional details regarding opportunities to participate in this process.
The Ministry looks forward to industry participation and feedback at future consultations.
