He also advised the members that the Corporate Planner and the Trails and Waterways Video projects both received Honourable Mention in this recognition program as well. He then noted the Brantford Cultural Advisory Committee (BCAC) has a vacancy for the liaison representative from the Tourism Advisory Committee (TAC) and asked if any appointed committee member would like to volunteer and serve in this role. Susan Sager advised that the committee usually meets on the second Wednesday of the month, at 3:00 p.m. at the Brantford Visitor & Tourism Centre. Arthur offered to serve in this capacity on the BCAC in the interim until a permanent representative from the TAC can be found. Councillor Bradford reported the Municipal Sport Bid & Hosting Policy was passed unanimously on February 22 nd by the Committee of the Whole - Community Development. He commended both Beverly Scott and Bill Harding on the presentation that they provided on behalf of the Task Force that was comprised of community stakeholders and staff who provided input to the development of the policy. Arthur thanked Beverly and Vic Prendergast for all of their assistance in helping to develop the Municipal Sport Bid and Hosting Policy. He also acknowledged the work of the tourism division staff and their commitment to ensuring that this inititave is moving forward.

2 Arthur then made a presentation to Beverly Scott in recognition of her leadership and commitment serving as the Chair of the Tourism Advisory Committee from DECLARATION OF CONFLICT No declaration of conflict of interest. 3. DELEGATIONS 4. MINUTES 4.1 Approval of the Tourism Advisory Committee minutes - January 26, 2010 Moved by: Carol Ann Wilson Seconded by: Natalie Michalchuk THAT the January 26, 2010 Tourism Advisory Committee minutes BE APPROVED. 5. ITEMS FOR CONSIDERATION 5.1 Regional Tourism Organization Susan Sager provided an overview of the new Regional Tourism Organization (RTO) model for the province and advised the members that this inititave was one of the recommendations in the Sorbara Report, Discovering Ontario: A Report on the Future of Tourism, Competitiveness Study, which was launched in February The report recommended the establishment of tourism regions to better coordinate tourism marketing and destination management across the province. On December 18, 2009 the announcement was made that there would be 13 different regions in Ontario and that Brantford would be included in RTO # 3 along with the City of Hamilton; the Region of Halton including the City of Burlington and the City of Oakville; the County of Brant; Six Nations of the Grand River Territory and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations. She then noted that Tourism Brantford staff has been engaged in the process over the last several consecutive months and has taken a leadership role as a member of the RTO # 3 Working Team, along with Tourism Hamilton and Tourism Burlington. RTO # 3 has developed an Expression of Interest on how the organization would be managed both in the transition/short term and long term. This document will be filed with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism by the deadline date of March 1 st. The organization is proposing in its first year to establish a transitional Board of Directors/Task Force to 2

3 help guide the development of the organization; identify priorities; and the overall operational structure. The creation of the RTO would also enable: Each individual municipality and communities involved in the region to continue to perform the local responsibilities and services that are currently being implemented while partnering with the new RTO to enhance tourism and increase capacity. More provincial funding allocated on a regional basis to tourism for new and enhanced marketing campaigns, product development, and market research. Tourism Brantford to undertake new and enhanced levels of service and programming that have not yet been developed due to mandate, funding, and resource allocation/capacity. Vincent Geerdinck asked about the short and long-term goals and will the RTO look into participating in the Pan Am games in Susan replied the Transitional Board of Directors/Task Force will be formalizing the short and long-term goals over the course of 2010, as soon as the approval is provided for the Expression of Interest that will be submitted the end of this month. Hamilton and Burlington have already been working with the Pan Am Games organizing team and now with the advent of the new RTO organization there is greater opportunity for the surrounding jurisdictions, including Brantford, to participate in leveraging this major international sporting event. Councillor Bradford noted he is feeling positive about the region that Brantford has been placed in and working with this region will give Brantford a higher profile. Keri Korfmann asked about the $25 million in funding that will replace the existing Destination Marketing Fee (DMF). Susan responded that the collection of DMF would be permitted by the provincial government/ministry of Finance until July of this year when the HST becomes enabled. The province has made a commitment to distribute $ 25 million per year for the next two years to communities who have been collecting DMF over the course of the last few years. This is above the $ 40 million base funding that has been allocated to the new RTO structure. It is meant as a transition funding from the collection of DMF revenue to the proposed new Tourism Levy that will be applied to all roofed accommodations that targeted to be implemented in Susan noted that not all the details of the Regional Tourism Levy implementation have been disclosed at this time. Kirby Brown stated that it would be interesting to see how the proposed new Tourism Levy will be received by the industry. 3

4 Beverly Scott noted that cross regional partnerships like the Grand River Country Marketing Alliance will still continue to be supported and will be viewed by the RTO s as an added value to marketing programs. Vic Prendergast stated that at the Grand River Country Marketing Alliance meeting with the Deputy Minister of Ministry of Tourism - Michael Kurtz in January he clearly stated that the new RTO model needs to encourage these types of cross-regional programs. Arthur thanked Susan for bringing forward this update to the committee.

B) THAT a letter of support in principle BE PROVIDED by the Tourism Advisory Committee for inclusion in the Expression of Interest proposal call for Region 3, in which the City of Brantford is included, that is due to the Ministry of Culture & Tourism by March 1, C) THAT an information report BE PREPARED outlining the new regional approach to tourism in Ontario that will augment and enhance the current investment in tourism at the local level for the upcoming Committee of the Whole - Community Development meeting, March 22, Tourism Advisory Committee 2010 Action Plan CARRIED.

In this way liaison members do not have to repeat what is outlined in minutes and can quickly highlight a few key points that have bearing on the role and functions of the Tourism Advisory Committee. Downtown Brantford BIA Keri Korfmann reported that date for the annual Downtown Cleanup Event is on April 21, 2010 in conjunction with Earth Week. There will be events planned with Parks & Recreation and the Downtown Brantford BIA. Chili-Fest was a great success this past 6

7 weekend and there were over 1,200 bowls of chili sold. Some of the events planned for the summer are the International Brantford Jazz Festival, the Telephone City Car Show and Buskerfest. She noted that the Downtown Market Analysis has been completed and a report will be provided in the next few weeks. Brantford Cultural Advisory Committee (BCAC) Susan Sager noted that there are two main priorities that the BCAC will be working on in 2010, firstly the Public Art Policy and the development of a protocol for implementation of the policy and secondly the creation of the Municipal Cultural Plan. Tournament Capital of Ontario (TCO) Vic Prendergast noted that there was a media event two weeks ago in Toronto regarding the Walter Gretzky Street Hockey Tournament in June. There were 93 teams in attendance last year and the goal is to have 200 teams compete this year. This year the Legacy Card will be running an outdoor concert in Lions Park and the Kevin Smith show will take place again at the Sanderson Centre that same evening. The Walter Gretzky Foundation will be leveraging additional sponsors for the event and this will in turn provide more opportunities to generate additional revenue for the Sport Legacy Fund. Brantford Day at the Blue Jays will be coordinated by the TCO and will be held in September this year. Keri Korfmann asked if the Sport Legacy Fund is the same as the Arnold Anderson Foundation, which donates funds to the less fortunate or lower income families. Vic Prendergast replied that the Sport Legacy Fund is a separate inititave and funds raised are held in a separate account. Councillor Bradford noted the use of the Sport Legacy Fund for projects must be approved by City Council before being implemented. Six Nations Eydie Styres gave an update and noted that she has been participating in the Regional Tourism Organization development and is also assisting with the 2010/11 Discovery Guide project in conjunction with Tourism Brantford and the County of Brant. She advised the members that she is currently developing the 2010 Business Plan for Six Nations Tourism.

He noted that currently the operating budget is a 3.2% increase over the 2009 budget. He 7

8 also stated that City Council would be reviewing mandatory and discretionary advertising costs as part of the budget process that could have impact to the tourism division and the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts.
