Ontario Needs Tourism

TIAO has launched a non-partisan microsite designed to help start a conversation with all candidates in every riding, in-person, at meetings, and on social media about why #OntarioNeedsTourism. The microsite includes fact sheets, toolkits, key messages, and images that you can share.  In an election that will be fought on many important issues, by working together to engage candidates, we can ensure that the tourism industry remains front and centre of any discussions about the future of our economy.

The Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) is recognized by government as the voice of tourism.

We advocate the importance of tourism as an economic driver and job creator in order to serve the interests of Ontario’s diverse tourism industry and business community.

At TIAO we work on behalf of our membership, collectively representing 200,000 businesses and 400,000 employees, to take on pressing policy issues that impact the Ontario tourism industry.
