Sustainable Tourism

The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve has partnered with Norfolk County’s Tourism and Economic Development to advance sustainable tourism in our area. This partnership was made possible thanks to a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

  • We’re working with Ontario’s three other biosphere reserves (Georgian Bay, Niagara Escarpment and Frontenac Arch) to share resources and strategies for developing sustainable communities.
  • We’ve created an online database of industry-specific environmental certification programs that is accessible to local businesses who want to improve their environmental footprint.
  • We want to learn more about your sustainable tourism practices so that we can help promote them and help the public make responsible travel choices.

What can you do?

Become accredited – join your industry’s environmental certification program and make changes to your business that will save you money and protect the environment.

Promote your sustainable achievements – make your commitment to sustainability part of your organization’s story. Tell your customers about what you are doing and encourage them to get involved.
