With a new snowmobiling season about to commence, the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC), thanks the Government of Ontario for its support of winter tourism and snowmobile trails, and welcomes the McGuinty Liberals back to office.
"The OFSC has established an important and effective partnership with the McGuinty Government over its term in office and we look forward to continuing that relationship to the benefit of the Ontario economy," said OFSC President Brenda Welsh.
The OFSC is especially pleased to continue working with the Honourable Michael Chan as Minister of Tourism and Culture.
With his ministry as the lead for snowmobiling tourism in Ontario, Minister Chan is an enthusiastic advocate for winter tourism who understands the economic, tourism, social and recreational value of snowmobile trails to rural and northern Ontario.
"Snowmobilers have a special affinity for Minister Chan because he's a genuinely down-to-earth guy who enjoys riding a snowmobile and shares our passion for promoting winter in Ontario," said OFSC Executive Director Paul Shaughnessy.
Thanks to the McGuinty Government and Minister Chan, Ontario snowmobilers, along with snowbelt communities, local residents and businesses, will experience the benefits of the many upgrades and improvements to the OFSC trail infrastructure that will help boost winter tourism during the coming season.
With 229 community based clubs and 168,000 family members, the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is a volunteer led not-for-profit association, which through strong leadership, provides a wide range of quality programs and services to, and on behalf of, its member organizations.
