“As we navigate recovery and continue our advocacy efforts with governments in addressing labour challenges, it is critical that we have a fulsome picture of total compensation and benefits of travel agents across Canada,” says ACTA President Wendy Paradis.
The previous total compensation and benefits survey was conducted in 2014.
At this point ACTA is seeking to update the information with new data.
Paradis says the data is an integral part of ACTA’s strategy to lobby governments to invest in travel agencies by demonstrating that the travel sector offers strong employment opportunities.
The data is also valuable to travel agencies as they work to attract new talent and review their compensation policies, she adds.
ACTA is asking all travel agency owners/managers to complete the 2022 Total Compensation and Benefits survey.
The survey should be completed no later than June 30, 2022.
ACTA is also engaged in a comprehensive study with multiple stakeholders on independent travel agent compensation, which includes host agencies and independent travel agents. This particular survey focuses on travel agencies and runs concurrently with ACTA’s other compensation studies.
