Request for Proposal – Champlain Commemorations 2015 Committee Website Creation


The Champlain Commemorations 2015 Committee is an organization which incorporates, but is not limited to four main partners. These partners include The Township of Tiny, Town of Penetanguishene, Town of Midland and the North Simcoe Community Futures Development Corporation. Working together as a collective whole, the Steering Committee is committed to the promotion of Huronia as a historically significant region in the creation of Canada. The committee is working towards the commemoration of Samuel de Champlain’s voyage and exploration of Huronia in 1615 through special events and legacy initiatives. 

The Champlain Commemorations 2015 Committee applied for and received an Ontario Trillium Grant for the purpose of strengthening regional tourism in Huronia by celebrating the 400th Anniversary of the arrival of Samuel de Champlain in the area. The grant is to support the committee in representing the three founding cultures (Aboriginal, French and English)in new and existing tourism events.
