Safe Travels Stamp Awards 2021

Announcing the 2021 Safe Travels Stamp Awards

What is the Safe Travels Stamp Award?

The World Travel and Tourism Council, in conjunction with the industry, including the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO), has created the Safe Travels Stamp based on worldwide industry protocols.

The Safe Travels Stamp is a specially designed stamp which will allow residents and visitors to recognize businesses which have adopted standardized health and hygiene protocols. 

The Safe Travels Stamp Award is a way for your customers and local residents to recognize your business's outstanding efforts in adopting health and hygiene standardized protocols for the hospitality and tourism sector.

It's their way of saying they feel safe when doing business with you.

There are 13 Safe Travels Stamp Awards to be won: one for each tourism region in Ontario. Voting runs from September 7 - October 11, 2021. 

Top finalists and winners will be announced on October 26 at the 2021 Ontario Tourism Summit.
