Canadian Experience Fund


This year’s TIAC Tourism Congress is funded through the Canadian Experiences Fund (CEF) in partnership with the Government of Canada.

Providing $58.5 million over two years, the CEF will support communities across Canada as they create and enhance tourism products, facilities, and experiences.

The CEF invests in products and experiences that showcase Canada’s strengths, while growing tourism beyond major cities and the summer season. Investments focus on expanding winter and shoulder-season tourism, growing tourism in rural and remote communities, increasing Indigenous tourism, promoting inclusiveness (especially for the LGBTQ2 community), and boosting culinary and farm-to-table experiences.
