RTO 9 Takes Home Several Awards at the TIAO Summit

We’re thrilled to announce that we have won ⅗ nominations from the TIAO Ontario Resiliency Awards.  The TIAO Ontario Resiliency Awards are well established as the defining tourism award program in the province and we’re proud to be a part of it. 

Our campaign, Rail + Roam won under the COLLABORATION category for Transportation, Regional Tourism Organization, and Accommodation.  We truly feel that these awards are a reflection of the collaboration we had with our partners and would like to extend our gratitude to Landsby, Alphabet® Creative, and VIA Rail Canada for all of their hard work and team effort put in during this campaign. 

A special congratulations to Tourism Kingston for winning INNOVATION – Food Service for Kingstonlicious, Delta Hotels by Marriott Kingston for winning the Safe Travels Stamp for Tourism Region 9 and The Eddie & The Festival Players for winning COLLABORATION Festivals & Events.

About the TIAO Ontario Resiliency Awards

2021 continued to be a year that challenged our industry, reinforcing the need for determination and perseverance. It just made sense for TIAO to continue to recognize those that have shown resiliency, gained inspiration from others and look towards rebuilding with the Ontario Resiliency Awards.

This year’s awards had two new elements of criteria. The first was that each nomination must be able to provide the actions made towards diversity, equity, and inclusion in what they are being nominated for. The second was that each nomination came from the desire and opportunity to promote and collaborate.
