TIAO's Advocacy Recap

TIAO's Advocacy Recap
16 May 2024 by Jessica Ng

It’s been another busy week at TIAO as we head into the Victoria Day long weekend. This past week:  

  • TIAO was at the Ontario Snow Resorts Association (OSRA)’s 60th AGM Conference and Trade Show, with our own Carol Greenwood (VP, Operations & Partnerships) leading a tourism panel featuring Destination Northern Ontario, RTO7, RTO4, and Discover Muskoka.
  • Andrew Siegwart was in Edmonton this week attending Rendez-vous Canada (RVC), the largest tourism trade show in the country.
  • And TIAO is continuing to work with Kingston partners, affected operators, government partners, and elected officials on the LaSalle Causeway closure, which is resulting in significant disruptions and revenue losses for Kingston’s summer tourism season. Read more below for the latest updates and for a joint letter from opposition critics in support of TIAO and industry advocacy.


Thank you for your continued support. And as always, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to send me an email at
