The rest of the country is beginning to take notice and we are proud of our work to do that.”
The Bay of Quinte Region includes Belleville, Quinte West, south Hastings County, Prince Edward County, Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, and Napanee.

“We love seeing growth in competition with one of our top competitors, and Muskoka, alongside Niagara, and Kitchener-Waterloo is one of those. Putting Bay of Quinte is a comparative position to Muskoka is a win for us, and we are looking to keep the pressure on.”
Look for more momentum to build, states Williams. Marketing with firm The Engagers, from Toronto, will continue to focus and build-out the 5-year marketing strategy that will see tourism, living, and business become a staple in marketing communication from organizations: Bay of Quinte Tourism, and the Bay of Quinte Living Council. The strategy dovetails visitation spend with population growth, and job growth marketing strategies.
