About TEN

Tourism Excellence North (TEN) is the Workforce Development and Industry Training (WDIT) pillar of Destination Northern Ontario (DNO).

Tourism Excellence North initially began as a three-year pilot program in 2015, inspired in part by the success and impact of a similar program led by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) in Atlantic Canada.

Through online and in-person training, Tourism Excellence North provides tourism operators, communities, and destinations across Northern Ontario.

Tourism Excellence North is aligned to support priorities for tourism development in Northern Ontario, specifically those of Destination Northern Ontario (DNO).
