Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island took home three Ontario Tourism Resiliency Awards at the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario’s Ontario Tourism Summit.

The Tourism Resiliency Awards are designed to honour tourism partners across the province in three areas during 2021, and recognized Tourism Windsor Essex in the following areas:

  • for innovation – Get Hooked Fishing Tournament in the Outdoor & Resourced Based Tourism categories
  • for collaboration – #DineYQG & #ShopYQG Campaigns in the Food Services category

Tourism Windsor Essex’s ‘Get Hooked Fishing Tournament’ was launched in April 2021 during lockdown measures in partnership with Anglers Atlas and Devonshire Mall. The virtual fishing tournament encouraged outdoor exploration along our 100 mile coast while staying socially distanced, and saw 120+ fishers catch over 3.6k+ fish during the 10 day tournament which featured a prize board over $3,000.

Tourism Windsor Essex’s #DineYQG and #ShopYQG were launched during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in collaboration with the Windsor Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce. The programs were designed to support local restaurants and retail.  In 2021 the program websites saw over 38k website views.
