“Even as the pandemic persists, we continue to provide our member agencies with industry-leading technology offerings, booking tools and training available to help them grow their bottom line and stand out from the competition,” says James. “On the education front, we’ve raised the bar by offering more on-demand lessons and webinars. And at our annual events, the ‘EDGE’ conference and our Canadian Fall Regionals, members can continue to develop and advance with a variety of learning options and see each other in person to renew and build connections.”

Paulo Branco, General Manager of Ellison Travel & Tours Ltd. in Exeter, ON, says switching from another large high-end host agency to TL Network Canada was the best decision.
