Businesses that are part of Nature and Outdoor Tourism Ontario should see a five year Strategic Plan by next March.

NOTO has hired a consultant to better help it meet industry needs.

Over the next several months the consultants will engage stakeholders, community leaders and industry in the planning process.

The engagement process involves holding surveys and focus groups to help determine NOTO’s future direction.

NOTO says tourism has seen a lot of changes in recent years so the time is right to ensure it’s meeting industry needs.
