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

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

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.
