Telephone Campaign - Suggested Phone Call Script

ACTA is asking members and Travel Agents to call their local MP!  Here is a suggested phone call script. Please take time to make the call and send your letters urgently. We will need to continue to lobby for support for our industry. Call today!

  • I'm calling as a constituent to ask you to make EI available to self employed, independent travel agents when the CERB program ends.
  • Across Canada, there are over 24,000 travel agents and about 50% are independent contractors.
  • Due to government travel advisories, border closures and stay at home orders, we are not getting any new bookings and it is estimated this will continue into 2021
  • Some travel agencies  have already closed their doors. Many travel agents will have no source of income for many months to come until restrictions are lifted and people feel safe to travel again.
  • We urgently need the government to declare self employed, independent travel agents eligible for the new EI program.
  • Please help travel agents! We will be one of the last industries to recover from this crisis.
