    The Ontario government continues to build on the gradual, staged approach outlined in A Framework for Reopening our Province, A Plan to Restart Ontario: Stage 1, by easing restrictions based on the latest medical advice.

    This follows actions to slowly reopen businesses and resume activities across the province, including the re-opening of provincial parks for day use, the gradual reintroduction of backcountry camping at provincial parks and the re-opening of marinas and golf courses a few weeks ago.

    Gift Certificate Redemption

    The Association has sold $4 million in Gift Certificates since the program’s inception.  This tool has been extremely well received by the travelling public who use this tool for gift giving, an amazing vehicle for attracting new business to Ontario Resorts.    Due to the success of this program, we launched on line Gift Certificates late in 2018.  Our gift certificates have no expiry date, are transferable and can be redeemed at any of our member resorts.   

    There is a clear process for redeeming the on line gift certificates.  Please go to Gift Certificate information on the navigation bar above.   When the customer checks in and advises you they have a gift certificate, we suggest that your front desk staff validate the number before check out.  If you need any information in this regard, please contact the ROO staff at 1.800.363.7227.
