The Ontario government aims to develop the landmark Ontario Place, a park in Toronto, as a top destination spot.

“Our vision for Ontario Place will make it an impressive attraction that could include exciting sport and entertainment landmarks, public parks, or shopping,” said Michael Tibollo, minister of tourism, culture, and sport.  “We could also have places for recreation, for people to come together, and to hear great music at the existing amphitheater.”

Tibollo announced that an Expression of Interest process will open this spring encouraging potential partners from around the world to take a fresh look at Ontario Place and make the vision a reality.

As a first step, interested parties can visit the provincial government’s website[2] for more information and will have the opportunity to submit their proposals in advance of the launch of the Expression of Interest.

Interested parties will also be able to request more detailed information about the site to help inform their submissions. Additionally, the Ontario government will explore interim opportunities to bring in short-term and summer programming while long-term plans are explored.
