Michael Shane Adams charged by TICO

Charged: CA Tour International Inc. and Ping Chen

MISSISSAUGA — CA Tour International Inc. ha been charged by TICO with one count of operating as a travel agent without being registered.

Ms. Ping Chen has also been charged with one count of operating as a travel agent without being registered, and one count of being an Officer and Director of a Corporation and failing to take reasonable care to prevent the Corporation from committing an offence, in this case, for operating without TICO registration.

It is alleged that Chen continued to operate CA Tour International Inc. after the company’s TICO registration was revoked on Sept. 18, 2018. The company had its registration revoked following allegations of non-compliance with the Travel Industry Act, 2002, including failing to file financial statements, maintain trust accounting and proper business records, submit payments to the Compensation Fund, and notify TICO of key changes within the company. Additionally, CA Tour International Inc. operated as a wholesaler without a wholesale registration.

Chen will appear in court in Toronto on Nov. 7.
