Ready When You Are


#ReadyWhenYR is launching, and we are inviting you, your business, your event or organization, to join a region-wide campaign that lets everyone know that York Region is ready and open!

The Regional Municipality of York, Experience York Region and the York Region Arts Council, with the support from municipal, regional and community partners, are collaborating to promote economic recovery by launching a new tourism marketing campaign. The campaign called “Ready When You Are” is aimed at promoting York Region’s vibrant tourism and hospitality, arts and culture scenes.

As businesses reopen, the campaign will highlight top destinations, attractions, recreational sports, restaurants and more, from across York Region. The goal is to showcase businesses that have reopened and ready to welcome guests, and let residents and visitors know that these businesses are “ready when you are”.

Refer to the Government of Canada’s website for more information about how your business can mitigate risk during the COVID-19 pandemic.

About the Campaign

The campaign is an outcome of the York Region Business Recovery Support Partnership. Through the partnership, York Region brought together industry and local business stakeholders to establish a Tourism, Arts and Culture Sub-Group. One of the main opportunities identified through this group was promoting York Region’s vibrant tourism, arts and culture sector as a way to support economic recovery, enhancing consumer confidence in the process.

From world-class attractions to festivals, outdoor recreation and more, there is no shortage of things to do in York Region. As businesses reopen, supporting our local business community while complying with public health and safety guidelines is one of the most important ways to promote economic recovery.
