The Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation (OTMPC) has launched Ontario Signature Experiences (OSE) to promote and market must-see travel experiences that will appeal to global target markets. The OSE program is designed to showcase the best and most unique tourism experiences in the province that will motivate more people to visit Ontario.

The OSE is linked with the Canadian Signature Experiences Collection (CSE) in order to both act as a stepping stone for Ontario tourism operators who aspire to be included in Canada’s international marketing and to highlight the diversity of Ontario experiences. Currently, there are 30 Ontario-based members in the CSE collection, all of which are automatically included in the inaugural Ontario Signature Experiences as announced at the TIAO Summit, November 2013.
