Dufferin County will be hosting a community information session for its Tourism Strategy and Action Plan on Aug. 11. 

The public session will be held virtually via Zoom and will allow for the community to weigh in on the development of the County’s five-year Tourism Strategy and Action Plan. The information session is part of a three-stage initiative that is being led by Dufferin County’s Economic Development Team and consulting firm Bannikin Travel & Tourism. 

According to Tourism In Dufferin, the strategy “is being created with the interest of stimulating visitation to the region with a defined vision, and in support of its economic development”. 

In September 2019 Dufferin County Council chose not to renew its $90,000 per year contract with Headwaters Tourism Association, following a report from the department of Planning, Economic Development and culture – ending the 25 year partnership. Headwaters Tourism provided tourism activities for Dufferin County, Caledon and Erin. 

Following the public information session, the final steps of the Tourism Strategy and Action Plan are scheduled for December 2020, with a presentation to be made to County Council. 

The public information session will go from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. with those interested in attending needing to register before the meeting. Registration for the meeting can be done through www.joinindufferin.com or through the Dufferin County website.
