Representing the Regional Municipality of Niagara, the Tourism Partnership Niagara (TPN) is an independent, industry-led, non-profit organization with a mandate to work with partners across the Region to enhance and expand Niagara’s tourism products and marketing activities.  Anchored by the awe inspiring natural spectacle of Niagara Falls, the Niagara Region is home to virtually everything a tourism destination needs in order to thrive - dynamic attractions, shopping, casinos, theatre, arts, heritage sites, horticulture, wineries, fine dining, golf, trails for hiking and cycling, beaches, festivals and events.  The mission of the TPN is to enhance and grow this highly competitive tourism region through visitor-centric strategies, and to build a strong brand that maintains Niagara’s reputation as a world-renowned destination. 

As Executive Director, you will work in concert with the sub-regional partners that share a vision to become the #1 leisure destination in Canada by creating a cohesive and compelling marketing and promotional strategy.   Reporting to an independent Board of Directors and leading a small dedicated team, you will bring energy, vision and visibility to the Region’s brand.  You will build on the tourism assets, activities and resources in place today, and leverage annual provincial funding to expand Niagara’s destination development and marketing efforts.
