The Tourism Development Fund is a grant program administered by Manitoba Tourism, Culture, Heritage, Sport and Consumer Protection.
The program supports projects that contribute to the development of new or enhancement of existing tourism products that reflect the core of the Manitoba tourism experience, a truly unique blend of cultural and nature‑based attractions and experiences. Priority will be given to projects that encourage niche tourism development at the local, destination and regional levels.
Non-capital project grants will be provided in the following categories:
Rural/Northern Tourism Development
Projects that enhance the quality of tourism attractions, improve the market readiness of tourism product and experiences, or support the development of tourism destinations.
Aboriginal Cultural Tourism Development
Projects that develop new authentic Aboriginal cultural tourism attractions and/or immersive experiences, or enhance the quality and market-readiness of existing Aboriginal cultural tourism product (e.g., festivals, events, attractions, etc).
