ACTA Looks For Input

ACTA has begun its consultation process with the Ontario government following TICO’s September 21 bulletin advising of a comprehensive review of its funding model and the Compensation Fund.

Wendy Paradis, ACTA president, said: “We are working with senior government officials and providing input at this critical stage. 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 now 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 PM ET on Oct. 26 to ensure it is analyzed in advance of ACTA’s end-of-month government submission.

Said Paradis: “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. This includes meetings with industry leaders and member-wide surveying. “

As well, ACTA has reactivated its provincial and industry advocacy efforts to limit red-tape and support a resilient business environment.  ACTA is poised to act in all parts of the country for travel agencies and independent travel agents.
