Toronto tourism industry to get $17.5 million from feds
By Michelle Collins | June 6, 2003
The money will be divided among two groups. A non-profit association Toront03 Alliance will receive $10 million to develop and promote tourist events in the Toronto region and attract international visitors. The Alliance will be made up of members of the city’s tourism and hospitality communities. The remaining $7.5 million will go to the Canadian Tourism Commission to be used to encourage Canadians to spend their vacation dollars at home this summer.
This latest contribution is being provided in addition to the $20 million that was announced previously. Both aid packages are part of the federal government’s Canada’s Tourism Recovery Strategy.
