Central Counties Tourism is pleased to continue its industry partner program, designed to further our collective success in attracting tourists (visitors that are travelling more than 40 km) to the region and/or extending the length of time they spend with us.
The popularity of the program continues to grow as more tourism stakeholders are making investments to grow visitation and revenues. In past years, Central Counties has done continual intake for partnerships until all of our available funds had been committed. Foreseeing an issue with more projects being proposed than we have funds for, Central Counties has staggered intake periods.
To ensure that CCT has partnership funds available for projects taking place during all four seasons, there will be five intakes. Proposals must be submitted no later than the intake period date.
Dates: Proposals must be submitted no later than:
March 15, 2021 for projects beginning April 1 – May 31 CLOSED
May 15, 2021 for projects beginning June 1 – July 31
July 15, 2021 for projects beginning August 1 – September 30
