The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a significant decline in tourism activity for many communities, especially those dependent on the tourism sector, across Ontario. To support an efficient and effective recovery in the tourism sector, Southwest Ontario Tourism Corporation has established the Tourism Adaptation Fund. They have also received support from Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island, Tourism Sarnia Lambton, Middlesex County and Tourism London. This fund will provide non-repayable contributions between $5,000 and $20,000 to tourism-oriented small and medium-sized enterprises, not-for-profit organizations and Indigenous communities to support one-time adaptation and reopening costs, retroactive to June 1, 2020, and completed by December 31, 2021.
