Come Wander

It’s no secret to anyone who lives, works, or has ever stepped foot in Ontario’s Highlands that this region is an incredible place to visit. Whether it’s enjoying the quaint rural charm of our towns and villages; exploring the rugged landscape rich with fossils, gems, and minerals; riding some of the most twisted and scenic roads in the province; or taking a moment to soak in the serenity of the great outdoors on one of our secluded lakes, there are endless experiences in Ontario’s Highlands to tap into your Inner Wanderer.

With the variety of experiences available, many of us believe this region to be one of the best kept secrets in the province and are eager to shout from the rooftops and promote everything we have to offer.

Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO) strives to work collaboratively with our partners in tourism to support an approach that will unite our industry, stay ahead of the curve within a dynamic tourism landscape, and build momentum for becoming the most talked about region in Ontario. The OHTO team is made up of experienced and passionate individuals who are ready and eager to help in any way we can.

We look forward to wandering with you.


Featured Initiative

Help Shape a New Ontario Tourism Strategy

As the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport looks to develop a new Ontario Tourism Strategy, they are first gathering feedback from visitors, students, and industry stakeholders in Ontario. Providing your feedback in the form of a short survey will help the Ministry ensure the tourism sector continues to grow and thrive.

The Tourism Operator/Industry Stakeholder survey is open to individuals who own a tourism business, support tourism businesses (e.g., Chamber of Commerce, BIAs) or are engaged within the tourism sector (e.g. worker, municipality, or association).

Your feedback will help to shape the following focus areas:

  • embrace a visitor-first approach
  • improve the business climate
  • improve sector alignment
  • provincial interests and role in tourism
  • support business and community development

The survey deadline is February 28, 2019. To learn more and to take the survey, please click here.
