Contact us for 2022 membership by emailing us directly at email@example.com
In 2020, thanks to a grant provided by the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industry, we had the opportunity to be able to extend complimentary membership for one year. TIAO then chose to extend this again in 2021 recognizing the continued struggle. Re-opening does not mean recovery. We know that the tourism industry was one of the first hit and will be one of the industries that takes the longest to recover, so as long as you, as a tourism operator, are a member of your local DMO and/or Sector Association - we will extend complimentary membership for 2022. We want to keep you engaged and allow you to align with your sector/local area - so that we can represent you, while you take this time to rebuild. For tourism operators, the complimentary membership is valid for one year from the date you signed up.
We asked for you to join us each Tuesday, so that we could share the latest information, and to hear your challenges, opportunities, and questions, so that we could provide answers. You have offered to be on committees, you have attended workshops, and in the most difficult of times, you have shown up. Thank you for sharing how your tourism operation has been impacted. We have heard you, we have advocated for you, and now we are pleased to offer one more way to ease your bottom line, increase your engagement, and provide an even more inclusive message as we represent your voice to the provincial government.
Our members have been incredibly supportive of TIAO, assisting us when we were in need, always willing to be there, and it is our turn to give back. We will be extending:
Complimentary membership to tourism operators in Ontario for 2022 as long as they are members of their local DMO/Sector Association.. The rates listed below indicate the value of your membership. For RTOs, DMOs, Sector Associations, Government and Educators - the membership rates for 2022 are as indicated below
If you are a tourism operator that would like to contribute more than your membership dollars to TIAO to support our advocacy efforts, you can do so in one of two methods:
- Sponsorship of an existing action - Tourism Issues Forum, Policy Speaker Series, AGM, and/or Ontario Tourism Summit
- Become a Green shoots sponsor 🌱 - For those members that can afford to pay more their membership, we will recognize the value of their existing membership through sponsorship (Green shoots sponsor) and use this value of their membership to continue the research and vital actions to rebuild and represent the industry’s voice to government in Ontario.
