Canadian Experiences Fund

Budget 2019 proposes to provide $58.5 million over two years, starting in 2019–20, to the six Regional Development Agencies (RDA) for the creation of a Canadian Experiences Fund (CEF). The Fund would support Canadian businesses and organizations seeking to create, improve or expand tourism-related infrastructure—such as accommodations or local attractions—or new tourism products or experiences. These pan-Canadian investments would focus on five categories: tourism in rural and remote communities, Indigenous tourism, winter tourism, inclusiveness, specifically for the LGBTQ2 community, and farm-to-table tourism, which is also known as culinary tourism. The CEF will accept applications on a continuous basis throughout the year. Based on each RDAs’ program, recipients will be awarded repayable or non non-repayable contributions. Eligible applicants include, but are not limited to, for-profit businesses, non-profit organizations, local government and Indigenous organizations.

Fonds pour les expériences canadiennes

Le budget de 2019 propose d’accorder 58,5 millions de dollars sur deux ans, à compter de 2019-2020, aux six organismes de développement régional (ADR) pour la création d’un Fonds pour les expériences canadiennes (FEC). Le Fonds soutiendrait les entreprises et les organismes canadiens qui cherchent à créer, à améliorer ou à agrandir des infrastructures liées au tourisme, comme des installations ou des attractions locales, ou de nouveaux produits ou expériences touristiques. Ces investissements pancanadiens cibleraient cinq catégories, soit le tourisme dans les collectivités rurales et éloignées, le tourisme autochtone, le tourisme hivernal, l’inclusivité, particulièrement pour la communauté LGBTQ2, et le tourisme de la ferme à la table, aussi connu sous le nom de tourisme culinaire. Le FEC acceptera les demandes de façon continue tout au long de l’année. Selon le programme de chaque ADR, les bénéficiaires recevront des contributions remboursables ou non. Les demandeurs admissibles comprennent, notamment, les entreprises à but lucratif, les organismes sans but lucratif, les administrations locales et les organismes autochtones.
