A message from the Honourable Lisa MacLeod, Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries:
As you know, Ontario’s heritage, sport, tourism and culture industries were first hit, the hardest and will take the longest to recover post-pandemic.
Throughout the summer, I will be sharing our newly-launched #RediscoverON podcast to showcase all Ontario has to offer.
On this week's podcast, I speak with the following guests and recap some of the unique experiences we shared:
Bill Walker, MPP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound
Brian Still, a fishing guide with Stillwater Fishing
Luke Wassegijig, a guide with Wass Tours
to listen and please let me know what you think!
Over the last 16 months, I have seen time and time again your resiliency and pride of place. That’s why I also want to enlist you and your team to become #RediscoverON Ambassadors for the month of August.
By showcasing your businesses and operations through your eyes, you will help restore confidence in these critical sectors and encourage Ontarians to #RediscoverON this summer.
As a #RediscoverON Ambassador you can have fun while helping the heritage, sport, tourism and culture sectors in your own community. I invite you to promote a local itinerary that includes your pride of place; from iconic landmarks, to cultural attractions, trails and parks and must-try eateries, there is no better time to experience and explore all our province has to offer; the world in one province. Be sure to share your adventures and operations on social media using #RediscoverON!
Throughout my summer tour across the province, I will be following your suggestions and highlighting the great places and businesses you are sharing with us.
Your leadership in your community will go a long way in boosting morale and our economy.
If you have any questions, or better yet, ideas, please make sure to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. In the meantime, thank you for your support of the critical heritage, sport, tourism and culture industries that make Ontario the best place in the world to experience and enjoy.
Honourable Lisa MacLeod
Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries
