Sports Tourism

Express Program

The Sport Tourism Express Program is dedicated to effectively bolstering smaller local and provincial sports events, offering valuable assistance to municipalities, and assessing their influence on both room nights and the broader sporting landscape within the region. By streamlining administrative processes and expanding its scope to encompass various sporting events, not limited to national and international tournaments, the program significantly contributes to the success and growth of local sports hosting opportunities. This commitment ensures a thriving sports ecosystem, providing diverse experiences for athletes and sports enthusiasts alike, and further enriches our region’s sporting legacy.

Our program welcomes all events that attract out-of-town attendees and is a great opportunity for championships, regattas, cups and more! Interested sport organizations, event organizers, and schools are all welcome to apply.
