Tourism Toronto is working closely with the City of Toronto, Provincial and Federal and other industry partners to actively monitor COVID-19 and the impact on our destination and the visitor economy.
The situation is changing hourly and our industry is having to adjust and adapt as the situation and risk factors evolve.
We stand alongside all of our industry colleagues during what we know is a challenging time.
Health and safety is a top priority for all of us – businesses, government and the public. We encourage partners to make informed decisions about their own policies and procedures.
Below are resources you can use to aide that discussion.
