Friday, May 15, 2020

TORONTO — The Ontario government is engaging partners in the heritage, sport, tourism and culture sectors in order to gather critical feedback on how best to reopen the economy. This input will inform decisions as the government implements its Framework for Reopening our Province document which was released in April 2020.

Yesterday, Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, was joined by Premier Doug Ford to speak with chairs from sector-specific Ministerial Advisory Councils. These leaders represent a broad range of organizations and are best positioned to identify opportunities for a sector-led response to the economic challenges caused by the outbreak. These Ministerial Advisory Councils will meet on a regular basis starting immediately and provide their written feedback to the ministry later this month.
