Hostelling International Canada
Sectorial Organizations and Associations - national
Hostelling International-Canada (HI-Canada or HI-C) is a not-for-profit, member-based organization, and a national member of the International Youth Hostel Federation (IYHF - brand named "Hostelling International"), the largest travel association in the world. HI-Canada has now a network of 60 hostels, from coast to coast; some owned, some affiliated. All HI-Canada hostels are regularly inspected for high standards of cleanliness, safety, environmental sustainability and available facilities.
The practice of hostelling was brought to Canada more than 85 years ago, but HI-Canada's mission is much the same today: To help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of peoples, places and cultures through hostelling.
