Do you have a tourism idea you want to bring to fruition? Have you tried to navigate the sources of funding, financing and businesses services available from various ministries and agencies? Come join us in this session, which will include information from one of our traditional funders – the NOHFC – but also some of tourism’s non-traditional partners, like the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund and the Aboriginal Economic Development Fund.
If you are thinking these funds are not for you, this session is set up so that you may see where a successful partnership could be established. We will also hear more about business services available from Business Development Canada and Small Business Enterprise Centres.
The panel that will preside at this session comprise of:

  • NOHFC: Graham Campbell, MNDM
  • OCAF: Kathleen Sharpe and Thomas Vaughan, OCAF
  • AEDF (MIRR): Tim Sim, MIRR


  • BDCs: Cora-Lee Ratcliffe, Sudbury BDC
  • SBECs: Josee Pharand, Sudbury Regional Business Centre

Experience has taught us that every time we facilitate a session of this nature, businesses discover a program that they did not know about and more importantly they make a connection that facilitates going after funding stress free. This may be your chance!
