To assist the tourism industry within Bruce, Grey and Simcoe Counties, RTO7 has developed four Staycation Tax Credit Packages to prepare for the Ontario Staycation Tax Credit.  The four packages will assist the tourism industry by providing information for:

Information for Accommodators on the Ontario Staycation Tax Credit

The Staycation Tax Credit is for one year only and is applicable for the period of January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022.
If you are not an accommodator, you and your business can benefit from the Tax Credit by strengthening your offerings/experiences/packages with the local accommodator.   Idea generators are included in the Non-Accommodator Package in the How can my business benefit from the Staycation Tax Credit if I do not sell accommodation? Section.

Information for non-accommodators on the Ontario Staycation Tax Credit

The packages have been created so that you can copy and paste the information into documents, on your web site or other forms of communication.
The packages, while they contain the information needed to action the tax credit, are by no means comprehensive of all details and the details may or may not change as the year progresses.
To promote the Staycation Tax Credit, RTO7 is creating an advertising campaign and updating, modifying our Promotions page and adding Staycation Tax Credit information on the web page as a campaign landing page. 
If your business offers packages or promotions and have not yet added them to the Promotions page, you can add them through your operator profile on (note: you must be a registered operator with a LIVE listing to add a package or promotion). If you are not yet registered as on operator, visit the Operator Registration page. For questions or help with registering, email
All stakeholders within the region are encouraged to prepare and take advantage of the Provincial Tax Credit. These Staycation Tax Credit Packages can assist you in your preparations.
