May 28 to June 3, 2017 - Tourism Week

I, Mayor Jeremy D Williams, do hereby proclaim the week of May 28 – June 3, 2017 as “Tourism Week” in the Town of Orangeville;

Whereas tourism generates 54 billion dollars in economic activity in Ontario and creates more than 600,000 tourism-related jobs;

And whereas we wish to encourage and support our local tourism operators to help them compete, succeed and grow;

And whereas tourism contributes to the quality of life of Orangeville residents and has a positive impact on our local economy;

Therefore, it is my pleasure to proclaim the week of May 28 – June 3, 2017 as Tourism Week in the Town of Orangeville, and thank all of our tourism-based businesses for helping to ensure that our community remains a hub for tourist activity in the heart of the Headwaters region.

Jeremy D Williams, Mayor
