Creative marketing strategies are a vital component for all communities and to any campaign. They can include activities that make an impact on visitor experiences and impressions. The Explore the Bruce Program markets and promotes Bruce County as a place to visit. Our efforts help to increase the length of stays and stimulate the amount of visitor spending by showcasing the ‘Best of’ destinations in Bruce County.

The Collaborative Marketing Grant encourages brand based promotional activities that highlight the best the community has to offer.
