TRF Funding Program

2022 | Product Development

In 2022, Fed Dev and Fed Nor provided business funding totalling $3 million dollars to 34 Ontario Indigenous Tourism Operators to develop programming and encourage product development, infrastructure enhancement, capacity and physical expansions, workforce development and digital enhancements.

ITO Business Advisors assisted applicants from all over the province as they completed their applications and planned their business improvements, offering free advisory services throughout the TRF process. All Indigenous Tourism Ontario ultimate recipients and projects referred to and approved by Regional Tourism Organizations received support to assist in the contracting period, understanding the claims process, and reporting requirements for the Tourism Relief Fund.
