Provincial Advisory Council

The Tourism SkillsNet Ontario (TSNO) Advisory Council brings industry leaders together to provide strategic direction to OTEC and our project partners with the objective of determining how the network can best address labour and skills shortages through inter-provincial collaboration within the Tourism SkillsNet Ontario (TSNO) framework.

This multi-stakeholder group consists of core corporate partners, regional tourism organizations, provincial and national associations, employment and training providers, and community service coordination and communications partners tasked with providing strategic guidance and governance to regional working groups.
