Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance
The Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance (OCTA) is the industry driven organization working to advance the province’s 10 year Culinary Tourism Strategy that was published in 2005. OCTA is dedicated to establishing Ontario as an international culinary tourism destination. With the premise that food is the foundation of our culture, culinary tourism experiences offer visitors to our province and it’s regions to taste our multiculturalism along their journey. Building relationships between growers and producers, and chefs and restaurateurs will enable the development of new culinary tourism experiences and ensure a sustainable food culture. OCTA is the organization leading efforts in research, education and product development to build capacity for culinary tourism.
