From August 19, 2020 to September 9, 2020, the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC) has launched the second intake period for their COVID-19 Stimulus Development Fund. New information was shared with regards to existing applicants who applied during the first intake period that closed on April 30th, 2020.
Please note: If your business submitted an application in April 2020, you are an Existing Applicant.
EXISTING APPLICANTS: Existing applicants do not need to submit a new application. If not already submitted, existing applicants must complete a Declaration form and are required to upload a COVID-19 Recovery Plan and project budget, in order to finalize their original April 2020 application. This supplemental
information must be submitted by September 09, 2020.
NEW APPLICANTS: if you have not previously applied for the COVID-19 Stimulus Fund for your business, you will need to submit a full application, including the Declaration, COVID-19 Recovery Plan and project budget. Only one application can be submitted per business. Applications must be submitted by September 09, 2020.
If you require guidance developing a COVID-19 Recovery Plan, we recommend that you refer to ITO’s 5-Year Strategic & COVID-19 Recovery Plan and align your plan with Ontario’s provincial goals and direction. In addition, if you have received a Customized Business Recovery Snapshot from Indigenous Tourism Ontario (ITO), you may use this to supplement your business’ recovery plan.
Before you proceed in applying or making additions to your existing application, please carefully read the program description linked below.
Lastly, please ensure you are subscribed to both the ITAC and ITO newsletters and follow us on social media to make sure that you are receiving information and updates as they come.
