Paper petition

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

WHEREAS

  • More than 12,000 Independent Travel Advisors in Canada have been without income for one year due to Government imposed COVID Travel restrictions, and these Small Business owners are Sole Proprietors.
  • 100% of Travel Advisors' income comes from commissions earned from their Travel Suppliers, and because of their delayed revenue stream, it takes between 5 and 11 months for Travel Advisors to be paid for work done on the booking of clients' trips.
  • The CRB has been the sole source of assistance for most Independent Travel Advisors, who are still actively working in their businesses, but unable to earn revenue.

We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to:

  • Extend the CRB for 6 months past the lifting of all Travel Advisories, for Travel Advisors
  • Maintain the CRB at the current amount ($2,000/ month) for sectors hardest hit by COVID, including Travel Advisors
