The Tourism Development Fund supports projects that encourage three key streams: tourism investment, tourism product development and industry capacity building.
The Tourism Development Fund program provides non-capital, project-based funding to:
- develop research-based innovative and emerging tourism sectors;
- support tourism organizations’ capacity building;
- encourage new private sector tourism investment attraction; and
- enhance Ontario’s overall economic competitiveness and opportunities for the Ontario tourism industry.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, and should be submitted a minimum of four months prior to the start of the project.
