Destination Canada: Tourism Relief Fund Now Open for Applications
Tourism Relief Fund applications through Regional Tourism Organization 5 (RTO5) are now open for businesses in Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton.
The Tourism Relief Fund, first announced by the Government of Canada in April 2021, supports tourism businesses and organizations in adapting operations and meeting changing public health requirements, while providing an opportunity to invest in new products and services that can help make businesses more accessible for more customers. Under the leadership of FedDev Ontario, the fund is now available to businesses throughout southern Ontario. There are strict eligibility requirements and some business sectors such as hotels, restaurants, and retail are ineligible for this particular program.
