The Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC), Hotel Association of Canada, and Restaurants Canada have joined together to ask government to help address the travel, tourism, and hospitality sectors directly, specifically through tax relief and credit measures.

According to TIAC, over 1.8 million employees work in the food service, tourism, and hospitality sectors (1 in 10 Canadians in the workforce). Combined, the sectors represent an estimated $139 billion in direct economic activity. 

A joint proposal has been put to the Government of Canada, and the organizations are asking individuals to add their names to it (available here) and to send a letter to your member of Parliament by clicking here
