Building a strong tourism industry in the north.

Destination Northern Ontario is the largest of 13 Regional Tourism Organizations (RTOs) funded by the Ontario Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries. We coordinate, align, and invest in sub-regional programs and lead in identified pan-northern management functions.

Northern Ontario Tourism Training Week is an event in lieu of our traditional summit to engage with industry across the North. We look forward to continue on building new partnerships, new opportunities and exciting developments together.

Tourism SkillsNet North (TSNN) is a partnered initiative designed to identify specific workforce labour gaps, train up to 300 potential employees and match them with available job opportunities within Northern Ontario’s tourism sector.

Building on 80+ years of successful fall conferences for the outfitting sector, the Northern Ontario Tourism Summit was developed as a partnership event between Nature and Outdoor Tourism Ontario and Destination Northern Ontario to bring together tourism businesses, organizations and suppliers as well as all levels of government at a single event to find solutions to challenges facing the industry.
