FedDev Ontario supports tourism recovery with investments in 14 women-led organizations
Women-led businesses are essential to a growing economy and the creation of good jobs in southern Ontario. Though they often face unique challenges, their determination and hard work ensures their success. The Government of Canada is committed to helping women entrepreneurs in the hard-hit tourism sector grow and flourish so they can become important contributors to a strong economy.
Today, the Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), announced a total investment of over $2.7 million for 14 women-led tourism businesses, through the Tourism Relief Fund, to develop unique experiences and enhance their offerings to attract visitors and strengthen their communities. This investment into the potential of women-led businesses will be a key driver towards a growing economy that works for everyone.
