To support the continued recovery of our region’s tourism sector, FedDev Ontario is launching a new, four-week intake of the Tourism Relief Fund and will be accepting applications from November 2 to November 28, 2022. This application process will provide an opportunity to support activities and events that attract visitors to communities across southern Ontario during the tourism sector’s winter and off-season months (e.g., seasonal markets, outdoor illuminations, outdoor experiential offerings, holiday parades and events, etc.). All projects must be completed by March 31, 2023.
Initially launched in July 2021, the Tourism Relief Fund provides support to tourism businesses and organizations to assist them with recovery, while investing in products and services to facilitate their future growth.
FedDev Ontario is hosting three technical briefings via Zoom on November 8, November 9 (in French), and November 16, 2022 to run through eligibility criteria and answer any questions. If you would like to learn more about the program objectives, and the application process, please register via the below links:
To help raise awareness of both the Tourism Relief Fund Initiative in southern Ontario and the technical briefing sessions, we encourage you to share this information with your networks.
