ACTA Launches Compensation, Benefits Survey

ACTA is launching a new industry survey and asking all travel agency owners/managers to report on the soft benefits of being a travel agency employee.

Wendy Paradis, president of ACTA, said: “As we navigate recovery and continue our advocacy efforts with governments in addressing labour challenges, it is critical that we have a fulsome picture of total compensation and benefits of travel agents across Canada.”

The association’s previous total compensation and benefits survey was conducted in 2014, and based on Member feedback ACTA is now seeking to update with 2019 data.

This data is an integral part of ACTA’s strategy to lobby governments to invest in travel agencies by demonstrating that the travel sector offers strong employment opportunities.

Further, this data is valuable to travel agencies as they work to attract new talent and review their compensation policies.

The association is also actively engaged in a comprehensive study with multiple stakeholders on independent travel agent compensation, which includes host agencies and independent travel agents. This particular survey focuses on travel agencies and runs concurrently with ACTA’s other compensation studies.

The survey should be completed no later than June 30, 2022.
