The Bay of Quinte Regional Marketing Board is a not-for-profit public-private Destination Marketing and Management Organization with a mandate of marketing tourism and resident attraction for the partners of Belleville, Brighton, Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, Napanee, Quinte Home Builders’ Association, and Quinte West.

It has two separate mandates – Tourism and Resident Attraction/Living. These mandates are now fulfilled through contractual agreement.

Funding from the City of Belleville


The Tourism mandate is funded through the utilization of 50% of the collected Municipal Accommodation Tax. Total estimated contribution for 2023 is $500,000, an increase of $50,000 from 2022.

This adjustment has been reflected in the base budget adjustments section of the budget. The Resident Attraction/Living mandate has been funded through a per capita levy of $1.55/capita. That was suspended in 2022 and
has been added back for 2023, resulting in an $86,900 increase from 2022 to support labour force attraction.

Other funding

The BQRMB is funded in part by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
