PhoenixEdge North Development’s mission is to seek out opportunities to rejuvenate the tourism offers in North Western Ontario. We will further develop the niche tourism sectors in the region by focusing on developing destinations in the ecotourism and adventure tourism sectors. We focus on developing low impact, sustainable destinations and products near ecologically or historically important areas in the region. Our plans to do this are highly focused on collaboration and partnerships with municipalities, not-for-profit, and private businesses in the ecotourism and adventure tourism sector. We will have achieved our mission when our brand is associated with renewed tourism offers throughout the region, that draw both local and international visitation.
