“Quite simply, Tourism Northern Ontario’s partnership program allowed Atikokan to take its first real crack at tourism as an economic development tool in almost 30 years. By supplying the AEDC, in partnership with the Town of Atikokan the financial resources, the mentorship and the partnerships needed to make getting into tourism development a reality, we made real strides in our first year with the program. Thanks to their program and their assistance, for the first time in decades we are able to positively make an impact in people’s lives when it comes to improving their tourism-based businesses. We can say with certainty in just one year we are moving forward with both our businesses and our community at-large, and we look forward to doing more with TNO in the future.”
