Ontario Tourism Strategy

The Ontario Tourism Strategy is a plan for the sustainability and growth of Ontario's tourism industry. It responds to the need to focus the province's diverse tourism industry to develop a strategic, long-term plan for tourism. The framework identifies areas for action through 2010 - some for the government to implement, some that the industry can work on and some that will require a partnership among several players in the tourism industry. As the strategy is living documents, we all need to think about priorities for the tourism industry, and identify what action is needed now and in the near future. All stakeholders in the tourism industry will be important partners in the success of the Strategy.
