ACTA Membership Types


Retail membership is ACTA's core membership category and made up of travel agencies across Canada. The travel agency owner pays for the membership of the head office location as well as all branch locations that hold a valid TICO (Ontario), OPC (Quebec) or Consumer Protection BC registration number. Dues are based on the agency personnel and agent headcount at each location. Each agency personnel or agent within a location that meets the criteria will be eligible for an ACTA Membership Card. 

Travel Agent Membership

For 2018, ACTA launched a new membership category to address requests from independent agents, independent contractors and home-based agents who have not previously been included in ACTA membership!  Qualified independent agents who wish to join ACTA will now be able to support their industry and enjoy the numerous benefits of ACTA membership.
