RTO9 Regional Tourism Organization (RTO9) will no longer be in market as a brand “The Great Waterway” but rather working with each destination within the RTO9 to get its messages out. Prince Edward County, the 1000 Islands region and the Rideau Canal are world renown brands and are well known in places outside Ontario and the rest of Canada.
Concurrently, RTO9 is working with key stakeholders and partners within the Tourism Industy in the region to collectivelly market South Eastern Ontario as a top destination of choice for visitors to Ontario from the rest of Canada and the world. Kingston, Belleville, Cornwall, Brockville and Gananoque are 5 populous destinations within South Eastrn Ontario that offer unique and engaging experiences.
