Tourism Economic Development Fund
The purpose of the Tourism Economic Development “TED” Fund is to provide financial assistance to Miramichi community organizations and businesses to develop new tourism products. Funding will be available to non-profit community-based organizations or for-profit community businesses whose purpose is to operate a tourism attraction, facility or activity and whose focus is on attracting visitors from the local, regional, national and international markets to the City of Miramichi.
The objectives of the Tourism Economic Development “TED” Fund are to:
- Build and foster relationships with new and existing tourism operators;
- Provide funding to assist with the development of new programming, services, experiences, or products which align with the regional or provincial tourism strategy and which can reasonably be expected to provide value to visitors and enhance the overall visitor experience;
- Where applicable, funding should be complementary to Programs offered by other agencies, rather than replace such funding;
- Assistance will not be provided where existing local business sustainability in a similar market will be adversely affected;
This fund is approved annually by Mayor and Council of the City of Miramichi. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year until the allocated funds are depleted. Council reserves the right to approve or deny any application that they feel does not meet the objectives of the Tourism Economic Development Fund.
Local organizations, businesses and individuals who are interested in partnering with the City of Miramichi on product development which support the growth of the Tourism sector in our community are encouraged to find out more about the TED fund by contacting:
