Ontario is extending its support for festivals and events with over $2 million in funding to support jobs and to boost local tourism across the province.
"Every dollar invested through Celebrate Ontario results in almost $21 of visitor spending," said Minister MacLeod. "This year's program received a strong response and we're ensuring each budgeted dollar supports as many community festivals and events as possible."
