Investing in Success

TIAC recently made changes to its fee structure to make it less confusing, and to make it more reflective of our members' resources. As such, 23 membership categories have been streamlined into three new membership categories, listed below.

Our new membership rates:

  • Maintain an affordable entry point for small businesses and branch members;
  • Represent modest inflationary-type increases for most of our members;
  • Ask larger organizations to make a stronger financial commitment to the organization.

An investment in TIAC is an investment in our success. Changing the public policy environment in our travel and tourism sector will drive visitation, investment and jobs in Canada.
