Industry COVID 19 Support Information

Tuesday, March 16 2021 the Provincial Government announced new supports for the Resource Based Tourism Industry. From the press release:

“Manitoba’s tourism sector – a key contributor to the province’s economy – has been significantly impacted by a reduction in domestic and international travel and other restrictions that were necessary to protect Manitobans and all Canadians from the spread of COVID-19,” said Pallister. “We recognize that these businesses have made significant sacrifices in order to protect their community. We are committed to helping them through this challenging and unpredictable time and to help position them for recovery.”

The new Hospitality Relief Sector Program, to be administered by the Manitoba Hotel Association and the Manitoba Lodges and Outfitters Association, will provide funding to hotels and full-time licenced resource tourism operators for fixed costs that have not been covered by other relief programs such as:
• property insurance,
• mortgage interest,
• property taxes,
• land leases,
• service fees,
• maintenance of camps, and
• resource retention costs.

Grants will be provided as a reimbursement for a percentage of eligible expenses incurred.

“This funding will provide a much-needed lifeline for the Lodges and Outfitters of Manitoba,” said DJ Seales, president, Manitoba Lodges and Outfitters Association (MLOA). “With the nature of this industry, many are facing a second year of no business due to the border being closed. MLOA would like to thank the province for partnering with and supporting these businesses and this industry during these uncertain times.”

More information on the Hospitality Relief Sector Program and how to apply will be available for eligible applicants shortly.
