Ontario Cultural and Heritage Tourism Product Research Paper February 2009 Introduction Ontario has experienced a decline in tourism, particularly travelers from the US. The Ministry of Tourism needs to take the province in a new direction in order to promote growth outside of the domestic Ontario market, representing new sources of revenue.
As an organization of provincial scope, Heritage BC recognizes that its members, and the local history and heritage they seek to preserve, occupy the lands and territories of B.C.’s Indigenous peoples. Heritage BC asks its members to reflect on the places where they reside and work, and to respect the diversity of cultures and experiences that form the richness of our provincial heritage.
The government of Ontario recognizes that our heritage tells us who we are, where we have come from and what we have accomplished. This knowledge is a source of strength and confidence. We support provincial ministries, agencies, heritage organizations, museums and archaeologists in order to conserve and present Ontario's rich cultural heritage.We help Ontario's economy through strategic support and investment by: working with the tourism industry and regional tourism organizations to bring international investment; investing in festivals and events across the province; protecting cultural heritage resources; promoting the arts and the creative economy; funding public libraries.Ontario Cultural and Heritage Tourism Product Research Paper, February 2009.
