RTO7's COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update & Resources

TIAO COVID-19 Survey 6.0

Update #21 - June 10, 2020
Thank you to every one of you who has filled out our survey every 3 weeks since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Survey 6.0 is open from Wednesday, June 10th to Friday, June 19th at 8 am.

As many tourism businesses are beginning to prepare for reopening, remember that data on the impact of COVID-19 to your operations is more critical than ever.  The data we collect here will be used to let all levels of government know which tourism businesses are at risk and what kinds of economic supports must be continued into the next stages of reopening.

TIAO will use this data in official written submission to the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs, and in our direct meetings with provincial Ministers in August.

Thank you for your time and dedication.
