Anna Kroupina, Open Jaw
The Travel Industry Council of Ontario has charged Millennium Leisure Travels Inc. with one count of operating as a travel agent without being registered. The travel regulator has also charged Kailan Ariyarajah with one count of operating as a travel agent without being registered, and one count of being an Officer and Director of a Corporation and failing to take reasonable care to prevent the Corporation from committing an offence, in this case, for operating without TICO registration.
It is alleged that Ariyarajah continued to operate Millennium Leisure Travels Inc. after the company’s TICO registration was revoked on 1MAY, 2019.
Millennium Leisure Travels Inc. had its registration revoked resulting from allegations of non-compliance with the Travel Industry Act, 2002, including requirements for financial reporting, working capital, trust accounting, and alleged non-compliance with conditions and orders on registration resulting from earlier action taken by TICO.
Additionally, consumers have come forward stating that they did not receive the travel services they had paid for from Millennium Leisure Travels Inc.
Ariyarajah will appear in court on 20FEB, 2020.
