The Travel Industry Council of Ontario (TICO) is pleased to welcome Ross Romano, the newly appointed Minister of Government and Consumer Services. Appointed on June 18 by Premier Ford, he brings a wealth of experience to his new role, including his most recent position as Minister of Colleges and Universities.

Having participated in TICO’s 2021 AGM on June 29, Minister Romano has already demonstrated his commitment to serving Ontario travellers, and along with the Ministry’s liaison team, we look forward to his guidance and collaboration.      

“TICO is excited to work with Minister Romano in continuing our important regulatory efforts and furthering our mandate of consumer protection for all Ontarians,” said Richard Smart, TICO President and CEO. “We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Minister Thompson for working together with TICO, especially during these extremely challenging times where we have faced great uncertainty. We look forward to our continued collaboration with the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services as the travel industry recovery gains momentum.”
