Earlier this year ITAC launched the COVID-19 Stimulus Fund to assist Indigenous tourism operators to invest in measures which minimize the impact of COVID-19. The first program intake ran between April 07 – April 30, 2020. In June, Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Indigenous Services, announced an additional $16 million for a new stimulus development fund to support the Indigenous tourism industry.
Since the launch of the Covid-19 Stimulus Development Fund, ITAC has awarded 678 grants and $16.212M. This was made possible with the support of the Federal Government of Canada and the Indigenous Services Canada.
