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.
