The deadline for NORDIK Institute and Algoma University’s tourism surveys has been extended to May 30, 2021. The research will support the recovery and development of the tourism industry in Northern Ontario, emerging out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Northern Ontario Tourism Development and Recovery Strategy in the Face of the COVID-19 Pandemic project aims to identify strengths and barriers to the tourism industry. The project involves unique surveys for visitors and prospective visitors to the region as well as tourism-related businesses and organizations, and asks questions about the tourism experience, the impacts of the pandemic, and opportunities to grow and support the sector in Northern Ontario.
To appreciate participants’ time, participants can enter a draw after the survey to win a $100 gift certificate to a local vendor or Northern Ontario tourism outfitter of their choice as well as promotional hats, toques and keychains from Algoma Country Tourism and Destination Northern Ontario.
For the purposes of this research, Northern Ontario is defined as Regional Tourism area 13, roughly corresponding to the Districts of Kenora, Rainy River, Thunder Bay, Algoma, Sudbury, Cochrane, Timiskaming, Nipissing, Manitoulin, and Greater Sudbury.
