Current Initiatives

Thanks to the generous funding of the Government of Canada, and the Government of Ontario, the City of Pickering was able to work collaboratively with Central Counties Tourism to support tourism initiatives through the Region of Durham, and Ontario as a whole.

The Pickering Museum Village, Pickering’s top tourism site, is proud to be a primary stop in three Tourism routes namely: Adventures with Anne and Temperance and Temptation the War on Whisky.
