2023-24 Partnership Opportunities Program

Tourism is about getting people to spend money in a community where they neither work nor live. To be good at it, many businesses have to provide exceptional experiences that motivate people to visit and, more importantly, ensure they return and tell their friends to visit. We can’t grow the visitor economy in a bubble. To that end, we are challenging every organization entering into a partnership to determine how they will work with others to encourage increased length of visit and money spent.

New for 2023-2024

1) All potential applicants must contact their region’s Industry Relations Manager prior to starting their partnership application.

2) Maximum program funding allocations have been set per intake period.

3) Funding amount is up to 40% of the total project cost, to a maximum of $20K per partnership application.

4) All applications (and final reporting) will be completed and submitted through the CCT Partnership Application Portal.
