Headwaters Tourism has been pleased to provide tourism services for 25 years on behalf of our tourism businesses and municipal partners in Dufferin County, Caledon & Erin. Headwaters Tourism has become a leader in rural tourism development and has been recognized with multiple provincial and national awards for tourism marketing development and innovation. None of those achievements would have been possible without our fabulous Headwaters businesses, stakeholders and residents.

"Headwaters Tourism served the community very well for 25 years. The tourism landscape of the area has changed drastically over the years and it is time for a different approach." said Bill Gillam, Chair, Headwaters Tourism.
