Tourism is a crucial part of Manitoba’s economy. Prior to the pandemic, Manitoba welcomed 10.5 million visitors annually who spent $1.64 billion throughout the province and was on track to reach $2.2 billion in visitor spending by 2022. Manitoba’s tourism industry contributed $649 million in tax revenues to the economy in 2019, money that supports critical public priorities such as healthcare and education.

In partnership with Prairies Economic Development Canada, the Winter Tourism Development Fund (WTDF) supports Travel Manitoba’s goal to increase the number of market- and export-ready tourism businesses throughout the province and expand winter tourism offerings, as outlined in the Manitoba Tourism Strategy.

A total of $350,000 in funding is available through this program for projects that support winter tourism development in Manitoba that are completed by March 31, 2023.

This fund is open to Manitoba-owned and -operated tourism businesses and organizations.

The deadline for applications is 11:59 PM (CST), August 30, 2022
