Destination Development funding programs

Ottawa Tourism is actively involved in the local community and offers financial support to assist not-for-profit organizations, national and/or provincial industry sector associations, municipalities, and for-profit businesses. The goal is to develop quality tourism products, encourage the competitiveness of our tourism sector organizations, stimulate increased visitor attendance and expenditures, and encourage private sector tourism investment in Ottawa. 

One of Ottawa Tourism’s key mandates is to lead or support all stakeholders in creating memorable experiences that align with our vision statement: Ottawa offers visitors the complete capital experience.
