Give the Gift of Ontario This Holiday Season


With the holiday season right around the corner, the Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation (OTMPC) is inspiring Ontarians, through its holiday campaign, to give the gift of an Ontario tourism experience to family and friends.

The holiday campaign is designed to promote Ontario tourism during the upcoming holidays, including the December holiday season, Family Day in February and March Break. More than half a million copies, in English and French, of Give the Gift of Ontario inserts featuring Ontario tourism packages will be distributed through newspapers across Ontario. They are also available in Ontario Travel Information Centres and by calling 1-800-ONTARIO. The campaign also aims to attract American visitors and a special Ontario advertorial will be featured in The New Yorker in December.

Hundreds of Ontario tourism experiences and packages are available online at . Whether it is a winter adventure, a visit to a fun attraction or a night out to a show, the holidays are a wonderful time to create special memories with family and friends.

“As Ontarians, we are fortunate to have a beautiful, diverse province to enjoy and explore year round. This holiday season is the perfect time to give your loved ones the gift of a unique Ontario experience, something they’ll never forget. Consider weekend getaways, theater packages, festivals and – looking ahead to next summer – tickets to the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games,” said Michael Coteau, minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
