Regional Ambassador Program

Interested in becoming a Kawarthas Northumberland Regional Ambassador? Sign up for our next cross-regional sessions on March 28th, 2018!

We’re always on the lookout for business who would like to host the Regional Ambassadors – or offer an experience for them to tell visitors about. Let us know if you would like our help to educate ambassadors about your experience!


Learn to create experiences for visitors.

We’re looking for frontline staff and operators from your business who are passionate about living in Kawarthas Northumberland and want to share that enthusiasm with visitors.

Join us for a half-day of learning about what it takes to be a Regional Ambassador and the tools you can use to stay up to date on what our region has to offer.  Meet other people who share your interest in encouraging visitors to stay longer, explore farther and spend more during their visit.  Help grow tourism by becoming an Ambassador!
