Southwestern Ontario Francophone Tourism Revival Program 2020-22

Application Deadline: December 31, 2021

The Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) is seeking applications for its Southwestern Ontario Francophone Tourism Revival Program 2020-22.

SÉO is a provincial network which, with its professional team, demonstrates innovation in economic development, entrepreneurship, employability and immigration. With the invaluable collaboration of its partners, the SÉO ensures the full participation of all players in the Francophone and bilingual economic community in the prosperity of Ontario and Canada. The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the decline of tourism activities in many communities in southwestern Ontario that depend on tourism.

In order to support an effective revival of this important sector for the Ontario economy, and counter the negative repercussions caused by the pandemic, the Francophone Tourism Recovery Program in Southwestern Ontario will provide a non-repayable contribution (grant) up to $ 20,000 to support the one-off costs of adapting and reopening Francophone tourism businesses and organizations located in southwestern Ontario, from North Toronto to Windsor to the West, and will be available until December 31, 2021 .
