The information session is being held on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 and runs from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Oxford County Administration Building, room 129.
At the information session, local tourism businesses will learn about the program criteria, application process, and pricing for signage on highways and Oxford County roads. Additionally, a TODS representative will be present to answer questions.
More information on TODS can be found at on the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport website and registration for the session can be done online.

“This information session provides an opportunity for local tourism-oriented businesses to learn more about TODS and also raise awareness that this service is available on County roads; a fact that not too many businesses are aware about. Attendees will be able to learn more about the program and some of the new signage categories. There will also be chances to have questions answered by representatives from the TODS program.”
