ACTA has learned that Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland will be delivering the Fall Economic Statement next Monday, November 30, 2020. Time is of the essence to ensure that the government understands that the situation is critical and targeted relief measures are urgently needed in order to survive and position us for recovery. ACTA and the Hardest Hit Coalition are launching intense lobbying initiatives.
ACTA is making it as easy as possible for you to share your voice and increase our collective political power.
By completing the form below and submitting, a letter will be sent to your local Member of Parliament and shared with key cabinet members making decisions about Canada’s travel, tourism, and hospitality sectors - Travel Agencies and Travel Agents included. All you need to do is add your name, address and email and the rest of the work is done for you. Don't forget to also add your own personal experiences in the body paragraphs to make the letter more personalized and share the following impact videos with your MP to strengthen our message:

- VIDEO: Lauren Harris – Owner & President, Voyageur Travel
We also encourage you to follow-up with your local MP and request for a telephone discussion. Information on the telephone campaign including a script is below.
Help us send a strong and consistent message in Ottawa.
Remember to continue retweeting ACTA’s social media posts. Twitter is the preferred form of social media within the government and the Parliamentary Press Gallery, and hence our focused attention on targeting messaging through this communication tool. Follow and retweet @ACTACanada.
A script is available here. We know you are stressed and busy but please take time to send these letters urgently. We will need to continue to lobby for Travel Agencies over the coming days and months.
