Tourism Industry Partners Program (TIPP)

Description

If you have a marketing campaign for which financial assistance for tourism marketing activities are required you may be interested in the Tourism Industry Partners Program (TIPP). The Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation assists stakeholders with marketing assistance to promote Ontario destinations and/or experiences outside Ontario, across Canada and internationally. The program encourages increased visitation and expenditures from overnight and out-of-province visitors.

Deadline

Beginning October 14, 2016, submissions for initiatives commencing April 1, 2017 and beyond will be made via Grants Ontario, our online service providing one-stop access to grant information offered by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. Grants Ontario offers a one-stop link to draft, submit and check the status of your grant application.

The OTMPC will operate the Tourism Industry Partners Program (TIPP) with established deadlines. There will be two application deadlines as follows:

January 13, 2017 for spring/summer initiatives starting April 1, 2017; and

June 2, 2017 for fall/winter initiatives starting September 1, 2017. All campaigns must be completed by March 31, 2018.

Eligibility Requirements

Marketing activities from industry consortia that target out-of-province and overnight visitors will be emphasized, in order to encourage visitors to stay longer and enjoy Ontario’s many regions and experiences.

Program funding will have an emphasis on out-of-province media buy. Funding support of up to 40% of an applicant’s out-of-province tourism media buy budget to a maximum of $200,000 is available.
