Canadian Experiences Fund

Canadian Experiences Fund
Funding supports communities across Canada as they create, improve or enhance tourism products, facilities and experiences.

The Regional Relief and Recovery Fund is here to support businesses impacted during the COVID-19 crisis. Find out if you are eligible and apply online.

If you are a FedDev Ontario client and COVID-19 is affecting your operations, you may be eligible for deferrals and/or flexible arrangements. Please contact your project officer directly or contact us by telephone.

If you can help meet the need for critical health supplies, respond to the Call to Action. Visit Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan for information on other measures.

The Canadian Experiences Fund, delivered by regional development agencies across the country, is a two-year $58.5-million national program to support communities across Canada to create, improve or enhance tourism products, facilities and experiences.

FedDev Ontario was allocated more than $11 million to deliver this Fund in southern Ontario.

The Canadian Experience Fund was the first dedicated tourism fund of its kind offered by the Government of Canada. The Fund proved to be extremely popular in all regions of Canada and, as such, was quickly exhausted as we received a high number of applications far exceeding total funding available.

Applications are no longer being accepted.
