Perth County - Today, Perth County Council strengthened its commitment to support tourism across Perth County.
“We have a great opportunity to focus our resources and develop a program that aligns with our growing Economic Development efforts” says Warden Mert Schneider. The Perth County Visitors’ Association has done good work in promoting the region, and now the county will build on successes to move the tourism program forward.
Tourism is a key economic driver for this region. Over 1.2 million visitors come to Stratford and Perth County each year. “Many people come to region to visit the local theatres and these visitors present a captive audience with an opportunity to extend their experiences beyond the borders of Stratford” says Meredith Forget, Perth County’s Economic Development Coordinator.
The county delivering Tourism Services under the Economic Development umbrella provides additional exposure and branding to Perth County that enhances economic development initiatives and reaches a broader audience.
