Regional Tourism Organizations

Ontario is paving the way for a stronger, more competitive tourism industry by supporting the industry as it forms new regional tourism organizations (RTOs) in each of the province’s 13 new tourism regions.

RTOs will be independent, industry-led, not-for-profit organizations responsible for building and supporting competitive and sustainable tourism regions. They will help attract more visitors, generate more economic activity, and create more tourism jobs across the province.

RTOs are currently being developed by tourism partners in each of Ontario’s 13 tourism regions. To get involved in the developing RTO for your region, please see the RTO contact information page.

This regional approach builds on extensive consultations with stakeholders and key recommendations from Discovering Ontario: a report on the future of tourism.
Find your region. The RTO map provides an overview of the counties and/or municipalities located in each of Ontario’s 13 new tourism regions and three northern sub-regions. Click on a region for more detailed information.

Ontario, Tourist- Oriented Directional Signs Program 

The TODS (Tourism-Oriented Directional Signing) Program is being offered through the Ministries of Tourism and Transportation. This program permits qualifying tourism operators to place their business signs along Provincial roadways.

The TODS program provides wayfinding and directional information to travellers throughout the Province of Ontario. Signs on the freeway display the buiness name and icon or logo.
