Francophone-bilingual tourism in Ontario
Domestic and international Francophone tourist markets represent more than 200 million tourists for Ontario. There are thousands of them right next door, in the United States. The province’s potential for hosting Francophone and francophile visitors is quite outstanding.
In 2009, and again in 2016, as part of the Tourism Action Plan (action no. 8), Francophone tourism was one of the priorities in Ontario’s tourism development strategy.
