Regional Destination Marketing Organization Partnership Program

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on the activities of regional destination marketing organizations across the country and around the world. Many of these organizations depend on accommodation levies and membership fees to operate, and travel restrictions have left them in challenging situations.

To assist, Tourism Nova Scotia is using partnership dollars from Destination Canada to help regional destination marketing organizations in Nova Scotia with marketing and recovery initiatives. 

Tourism recovery is expected to begin with hyper local travel – Nova Scotians exploring close to home. Research suggests that as COVID-19-related travel restrictions are lifted, travellers will begin to widen their movements with more travel throughout the province, and eventually between provinces. This program will help eligible regional destination marketing organizations implement marketing activities that are complementary to Tourism Nova Scotia’s marketing recovery plan.
