Regional Ambassador Program


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!

About the Training

This program was developed specifically for our region to help increase visitor engagement and turn every encounter into a positive and lasting impression for each visitor to our region.

By improving the level of service and destination experience for our visitors we will increase visitation, length of stay and dollars spent within our region resulting in more jobs, more shifts and more dollars into our local tourism community.

This program reflects the commitment that Kawarthas Northumberland has in contributing to raising the service skills, and knowledge of what our destination offers to visitors, for each participant in the program.

Stay tuned for the rest of the 2018-2019 dates
