ITO and the Ontario Tourism Innovation Lab have partnered to launch the Skode Program, an initiative to spark new Indigenous tourism ideas and experiences that authentically represent, celebrate and promote Indigenous culture, heritage, language, cuisine and communities in Ontario.

In Anishinaabemowin, Skode means fire, and is pronounced: Shkoh-deh. Indigenous tourism entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations are encouraged to apply and share the fire within their hearts.

The program matches selected applicants with a mentor and provides a $5,000 non-repayable contribution to help take their new tourism ideas to the next level of development. Applications are open until May 28 at 11:59pm.
