Thanks for having us on the famous Pink Couch! Independent Travel Advisors are a growing force in Canada, & will soon outnumber "Salaried"/Brick & Mortar Agents (currently over 40% of the 24,000 Travel Advisors in Canada are Independent)
We appreciate you listening to our voice & giving us the platform on Open Jaw to reach so many of the IC's that we are endeavouring to support.

@Richard and @Danny - we welcome ANY Canadian Independent Advisors! Join us!

@Sally Levy - Our current mandate is to advocate for Independent advisors for CERB/EI program. After which we will be tackling other issues unique to Canadian Independent advisors.
@Jane Hart - the link to the group should be in comments, OR you can search "Canadian Independent Travel Advisor" group on Facebook. Please be sure to answer all FOUR questions.

Great job ladies! The competition is not each other, it is those who book on-line themselves and think travel agents are obsolete. Keep up the good work!

@Danny Almon Male independent travel advisors can also join the association. Open Jaw wished to highlight that it was three women who founded the association, but men are most certainly welcome!
Danny Almon - August 25, 2020 @ 12:14
Only a few of us males in the industry... any particular reason why we can't be included?
Jane Hart - August 25, 2020 @ 11:57
how to join. Perhaps we can make a list of hotels that dont pay when
they say they do....

Thank you ladies for the great job you have done so far and for fighting for us men as well.
