Ontario Establishes Tourism Economic Recovery Task Force

Published on March 11, 2021

The government announced a Tourism Economic Recovery Task Force to provide advice about how to help the province’s hard-hit tourism industry recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Tourism Economic Recovery Ministerial Task Force will provide a forum for sector partners and leaders to share ideas, collaborate and provide advice and information to the minister on strategies, tactics and approaches to support the economic recovery of Ontario’s tourism industry.

The task force, chaired by Tim Hudak, a former MPP who served as Minister of Culture, Tourism and Recreation from 2001 to 2002, will explore opportunities for recovery and growth of the tourism sector. Its mandate includes providing strategies and advice that help position Ontario and its local communities as destinations of choice for travel, as well as identifying travel and tourism incentives, products and experiences that enhance destination development.

The task force will deliver a report with its recommendations to the minister in spring 2021.

The government looks forward to the task force’s advice and recommendations on how to help the tourism industry rebuild and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
