Bay of Quinte Regional Marketing Board Transparency

In May 2016, the Bay of Quinte Tourist and Living Councils voted to form an interim organization with the mandates of marketing tourism and resident attraction under the name Bay of Quinte Regional Marketing Board. In order to increase transparency and awareness about the organization, its members and its projects, we have posted information and documents below pertaining to the organization and Board of Directors.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Bay of Quinte Regional Marketing Board Executive Director, Dug Stevenson, with any questions: 613.438.2579 /
