The Greater Toronto Hotel Association (GTHA) has been working with all three levels of government to ensure a comprehensive and consolidated picture of the impacts of this pandemic on our industry is being actively communicated. The GTHA  is urging all governments to focus on the most pressing issues including health and safety measures, financial support for staff, and easing regulatory and compliance burdens where appropriate. We are also advocating for the formulation of government relief programs to address liquidity and immediate cash flow issues that will allow the industry to remain viable during the difficult days ahead. 

Stay informed on COVID19 with accurate and up-to-date information for your hotel, employees, and guests through this dedicated site which contains the latest federal, provincial and municipal information impacting the hotel industry.
