FedDev Ontario has announced that starting November 2, 2022, they are launching a new, four-week intake of the Tourism Relief Fund.
The Tourism Relief Fund supports tourism businesses and organizations to assist tourism operators in promoting, presenting and expanding activities that attract tourists and visitors to events happening between November 2022 and March 2023—investing in products and services that facilitate your business’s future growth.
This is an update to an ongoing program. New Tourism Relief Fund applicants are welcome to apply for this funding. With a budget of $500 million over two years (ending March 31, 2023), including $485 million in regional priorities funding administered by Canada’s regional development agencies, with $50 million dedicated explicitly to Indigenous tourism initiatives.

All projects must be completed by March 31, 2023.
