June 10 to 16 is Tourism Week in Canada. Tourism is a key contributor to our economy, not only on a national level but also right here in Halton. Tourism also means business in our community, since jobs and businesses in our region are directly supported by the industry.
Tourism Week is not just about showcasing the economic impact and social benefits of our tourism sector, it’s about celebrating the many opportunities for entertainment, recreation, education, relaxation and fun, here in Halton Region.
From beautiful gardens, farmers’ markets and heritage attractions, unique dining and shopping, performing arts, to biking, hiking horseback riding and countless other activities, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy.
This week, why not invite a friend or family member to Halton and share your favourite spot?
