The Association of Canadian Travel Agencies (ACTA) has begun its consultation process with the Ontario government following the Travel Industry Council of Ontario's (TICO’s) Sept. 21 bulletin advising of a comprehensive review of its funding model and the Compensation Fund.
“We are working with senior government officials and providing input at this critical stage,” said Wendy Paradis, ACTA's president, in a statement. “We are seeking members’ input on an urgent basis before submitting our brief to the Ontario government at the end of the month.”
ACTA has launched a survey seeking feedback on how travel agencies and independent travel agents see TICO’s role evolving in the future.
Travel agencies and independent travel agents are encouraged to submit feedback by 5:00 p.m. ET on October 26 to ensure it is analyzed in advance of ACTA’s end-of-month government submission.
“Travel agencies and independent travel agent consultation is an important step in ACTA’s advocacy strategy to ensure the voice of the retail industry is accurately represented,” said Paradis. “This includes meetings with industry leaders and member-wide surveying. “
ACTA has also recently reactivated its provincial and industry advocacy efforts to limit red-tape and support a resilient business environment.
The association says it is poised to act in all parts of the country for travel agencies and independent travel agents.
