Get the latest info on the CTC and Canadian tourism industry. This time: adventure tourism insurance.
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.
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,
