Ontario’s tourism minister said Thursday the sector had been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lisa MacLeod pledged more government support but also urged Ontarians to support local businesses and take staycations.
She says the province may not see its visitor levels return to 2019 levels until 2024.
