Tourism Industry Association of Canada recap of TIAC’s advocacy work on behalf of their members:

March 27, 2020

  • Today’s official announcements “to help small businesses keep more employees on payroll” represent a significant win for the industry, with new measures responding in large part, to the ongoing push TIAC has been making to Government seeking support for our members. We also launched a joint campaign with our partners at Restaurants Canada and Hotel Association of Canada over the past few days to gather as many industry signatures as possible to support our proposal to Minister Morneau. As of today, we have collected; 4,358 signatures on the petition and 1,851 letters were sent to MPs
  • Today’s announcements are a win for our industry as we continue to weigh in with the Minister’s office on details and in determining what constitutes a “qualifying business”.
  • As TIAC continues to work with the Minister of Economic Development and the Minister of Finance on concrete relief measures, we will ensure the interests of all tourism businesses, including associations and indigenous businesses are taken into consideration and lead to broad access to the programs announced.

March 26, 2020 

  • The letter-writing campaign launched yesterday by TIAC, The Hotel Association of Canada and Restaurants Canada got off to an impressive start. Members and industry acted immediately on the request to; support the petition to Minister Morneau for immediate relief, as well as use the Push Politics tool to send letters to MPs seeking tangible support for tourism.
  • As of early afternoon today, 2114 signatures on the petition to Minister Morneau have been collected and 1253 letters sent to MPs.
