The Municipality of Central Manitoulin, in partnership with Destination Northern Ontario and Indigenous Tourism Ontario, has engaged the Culinary Tourism Alliance in developing a culinary tourism strategy for Mnidoo Mnising/Manitoulin Island.
As part of the strategy development process, we are gathering insight on Mnidoo Mnising/Manitoulin Island’s current culinary tourism context. In this survey we are gathering contact information from industry members interested in attending a culinary tourism workshop in late January/early February. Additionally, up to six (6) businesses will be selected to receive dedicated support from the Culinary Tourism Alliance to develop a new food & beverage experience over the course of the program, which will run from January to May 2022.
This initiative is being organized by the Mnidoo Mnising/Manitoulin Island Culinary Tourism Steering Committee with equal representation from Indigenous and non-Indigenous members. By now many Manitoulin Island Culinary businesses should have been contacted by email. If you have not been contacted or wish to be considered for the program, we ask that you complete a short anonymous survey by end-of-day January 16th 2022; it should take you 8-10 minutes to complete.
Additionally, you will have the opportunity to share your contact information if you are interested in attending a culinary tourism workshop in late January/early February (Details TBD).

If there are other industry members on Manitoulin Island you feel would benefit from participating in the survey, please forward this communication to them.
