Funding for tourism businesses for new products

CANADA, January 27 - A new funding program is available to inspire tourism businesses to think of new ideas that showcase Prince Edward Island as a year-round destination. 

The Multi-Season Tourism Product Development Fund provides support to tourism businesses to create and develop new products outside of what they currently offer to help grow the province into a multi-season tourism destination. 

The maximum grant per operator is $7,500 and will be administered through a partnership between Tourism PEI and the Regional Tourism Associations (RTAs) and Destination Management Organizations (DMOs), including:

  • Central Coastal Tourism Partnership
  • Discover Charlottetown 
  • Explore Summerside
  • Island East Tourism Group
  • North Cape Coastal Tourism Partnership
  • Tourism Cavendish Beach

“Growing Prince Edward Island into a multi-season destination is a top initiative from the industry’s strategy. It challenges us to do things a bit differently, to dream big, and consider all the possibilities of what tourism on the Island could be.”

- Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture Minister Bloyce Thompson
