Bay of Quinte MP Neil Ellis announced $300,000 in federal funding for Prince Edward County to encourage shoulder and off-season tourism.

The ‘Experience the County’ funds will focus on local product and service development, market readiness training, way funding and gateway signage.

The money is through FedDev Ontario’s Canadian Experiences Fund (CEF), which supports the creation, improvement or enhancement of tourism products, facilities and experiences.

“Tourism is a strong economic driver for Prince Edward County, and visitors come from far and wide to Experience the County,” said Ellis. “With FedDev Ontario funding through the Canadian Experiences Fund, Prince Edward County will be able to advance their tourism sector. I believe this funding is going to bring the local economy tremendous growth, and overall boost to the County as a whole.”

“Hundreds of entrepreneurial and innovative people in the County have built businesses and attractions that employ thousands of people each year, making tourism the fastest growing industry in Prince Edward County and a critical part of our local economy,” said Mayor Steve Ferguson. “We are excited to enhance the support we can offer tourism operators with the assistance of the Canadian Experiences Fund. We look forward to strengthening our tourism products and experiences and connecting more visitors to our many year-round attractions.”
