Hi,

Could you please provide me with a link to the website containing the contact info of insurers in the adventure tourism sector, more specifically motorboat sport fishing.

 

 

I think it’s the Insurance Services Providers Database for Adventure and Ecotourism Operators, which contains the location of the insurers and other information.

Thanks,

Jean-Yves

Hi Jean-Yves,

 

The list of insurance service providers you’re referring to is an old one that the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) created in 2002, so is not very up-to-date. We do have top-notch tourism research on a host of other areas. But I digress. In this instance, get in touch with Gilles Valade, chair of the Adventure Studies faculty at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC.

Valade is a maestro in outdoor adventure tourism insurance, and has given tutorials on the subject. If he does not have current contacts at his fingertips, he will certainly be able to help you track down some more relevant info.

All the best,

Tourism BizWiz

Hi Paul

We don't carry printed material for each province and territory. Our consumer website (www.canada.travel) will give you a general overview, but for more specifics please get in touch with the provincial marketing organization in each of the four Atlantic provinces. They will be more than happy to fill in the gaps.

Hi Joe

Best thing is to contact your former employers. We don't carry that kind of info at CTC.

Hello, I am a retired govt employee, 73 years old and have a question. Is there any govt plan available to me for travel insurance? Are there any resources I can contact for details?

Thank you.

I would like to have a tourist guide for the Atlantic Provinces and any other travel information type packets that are available. My wife and I would like to visit this area in the next six monthss.

Hi Peter

For train travel in Canada you should get in touch with VIA Rail (http://www.viarail.ca/en/main). They will have all the info you think you need, and a bit more!

Hi John

For any questions like that on being admitted to Canada, please get your friend to contact the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) (http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/menu-eng.html). Staff there will be able to clarify.

best, Mat
