TIAC's Grassroots Advocacy Tool
Contact Your MP Today to Call for a Competitively-Funded CTC
As our members and as tourism businesses across the country, TIAC is asking for your help to make the case for more funding to market Canada as a tourism destination.
Funding the CTC is more important than ever. Tourism continues to grow globally, but Canada’s share continues to erode. We have slipped from 7th to 18th in the world for international visitors and we are one of only five countries to experience a drop in arrivals in the last 10 years. With less money to promote Canada in key markets, we will unquestionably struggle to take advantage of the growth in international travel.
As the tourism industry’s front line representatives, you give a face to the story of how important our sector is in your community. Your voice will give urgency to the industry’s call for a competitively-funded CTC.
- Fill in our template letter below to automatically send an email to your MP.
- Have a bit more time? You can follow up your letter with a meeting with your MP to discuss this very real threat to the industry. TIAC has an online advocacy centre with grassroots advocacy tips, talking points and an information kit to leave with your MP.
We need you to encourage your colleagues in the industry to join TIAC and get involved.
We encourage you to personalize your letter by adding in a greeting and adding your signature block. You are also free to edit the text as you see fit. A copy of your letter will be sent to both TIAC, the Prime Minister's office, and the Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism, and Agriculture).
