The Ontario government is providing over $1 million in financial relief to more than 300 resource-based tourism businesses operating at Ontario’s provincial parks and conservation reserves by waiving and reducing certain land use and licence fees for 2021. The province’s continued support for the resource-based tourism industry will help local businesses that have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The 2021 relief for resource-based tourism businesses includes:

  • Removing 2021 annual land use fees for commercial outpost camp permit holders.
  • Reducing and deferring payment of land use fees for commercial youth camps until the 2022 season.

Reducing license fees for some commercial operators under service agreements in Ontario Parks for 2021.
