TIAO has been consistently working to ensure that the tourism industry’s voice is heard and that the government regulation of the Municipal Accommodation Tax is structured in a way that provides consistency and security for business and customers alike.
- Working with both and the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries to conduct ongoing consultations both at our request and theirs
- Speaking about challenges, opportunities, best governance practices at events such as TIAO's Tourism Issues Forum and the Ontario Tourism Summit
- Including recommendations in our all government relations messaging (white papers, official letters, briefing notes)
TIAO has created a list of FAQs with corresponding answers, and other supporting resources for anyone seeking more information about the municipal accommodation tax, including implementation and connections with existing DMFs.
