The Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism, and Culture Industries is working with industry and agency partners to launch Ontario Live — a new virtual hub designed to promote and support the province’s tourism and cultural industries. This initiative, developed in collaboration with industry partners and leaders, will provide support for Ontario’s culture and tourism industries and help to mitigate the economic toll of the COVID-19 outbreak on Ontario’s artists, creators and attractions.

Today, Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries held her sixth a stakeholder telephone town hall and announced the province’s launch of Ontario Live.

This initiative shares with Ontarians inspiring and uplifting culture and tourism content by working with industry stakeholders to keep consumers engaged and ready to travel again when it is safe to do so.

When complete, Ontario Live will allow all Ontarians to access concerts, online art experiences, gallery and museum tours, virtual tourism experiences and much more, from the safety of their own homes. It will continue to evolve to support COVID-19 recovery efforts for the tourism and culture industries.
