It’s time to start planning your next Great Taste of Ontario adventure! With road trip ideas, routes and stories, we’ll help you fall in love with Ontario again, and again.

Each season, you can download one of over 80 passports from across the province to help guide your planning and inspire. Then, when you’re ready, take the time to safely visit the growers and makers who make Ontario so special. Each time you check-in, you’ll be one step closer to redeeming some sweet Ontario-made prizes – while supporting communities across Ontario too!
