The Township of Oro-Medonte has recently launched an online Tourism Ambassador Certificate Program that features six (6) online eLearning modules.
These modules feature informational videos, interactive maps, and situational scenarios regarding local history, arts & culture, opportunities to explore, available experiences, and information on planning a visit to Oro-Medonte. The Township is grateful to our tourism partners for their collaboration and assistance in developing content for the program.
The purpose of the Oro-Medonte Tourism Ambassador Certificate Program (OMTACP) is to incentivize people living and working in the township to stay up-to-date on available tourism experiences, encourage longer visits and to support local businesses.
The certificate program was designed to be a free-flowing and enjoyable experience, allowing participants to complete the program at their own pace. Completion of the certificate program’s modules will take approximately two (2) hours total.
Mayor Randy Greenlaw commented that “it is fantastic to see economic development initiatives within the Township, enabling local residents and the business community to learn more about what Oro-Medonte has to offer. We are proud of our heritage, culture, creative artists, and local businesses. Through this program, we look forward to promoting these local businesses, experiences, and the teachings of our rich history.”
The Township encourages residents and businesses to participate in the certificate program. Upon completion of the program, each participant will be awarded a certificate of completion and recognition.
Included with the OMTACP is a Tourism Ambassador contest running until November 1, 2023. For contest rules, please visit bit.ly/3AR7Js6.
