TORONTO — TL Network Canada continues to see major growth across Canada, with 14 new member agencies added in 2019.
According to Vice President Christine James, this steady increase is a result of a “very targeted approach” to membership growth, along with training enhancements and award-winning tools, all of which are essential to attracting new members.
“We are continuously providing our member agencies with industry-leading technology offerings and newly enhanced products, which helps them to grow their bottom line and stand out from the competition,” she said. “During the first half of 2019 alone, we’ve experienced a 72% year-over-year increase in leads generated through our one-of-a-kind online lead generation tool, Agent Profiler, which is located at CanadianTravelAgents.ca.”
New member agencies who’ve joined in 2019 include: Choice Travel, AB; Elite Travel Management, AB; Narat Travel, NY Branch; Ola Travel Inc., MB; Pacita Travel Worldwide, BC; Queen Travel Inc, BC; Savior Tours Inc. ON; Sunway Travel, AB; The Bear Travel Ltd, BC; Travel Roots Inc, MB; Travel Tickets to Go Ltd., AB; and Whitehorse Travel, ON.
On the benefits of joining TL Network Canada, Asmeetaa More, Owner of Choice Travel in Edmonton, said: “The value-added benefits, including advanced technology tools like CruisePro, are very user friendly, and being able to access multiple marketing programs offers higher profitability for our agency. We highly recommend being a part of this agency organization and look forward to a mutually beneficial affiliation with TL Network and Sue Urie in Western Canada.”
Samir Sefain, President of Savior Tours in Toronto, gave similar feedback, saying: “We have seen excellent value and multiple benefits since becoming a part of the TL Network Canada organization. I’ve felt nothing but encouragement and sincere support from TL Network’s Suzanne Fleming in Eastern Canada who has gone out of her way to assist us with all logistics. Additionally, the TL Network portal has everything our agency is looking for — value prices for our customers and good commissions for our agents. We would not have had this amazing opportunity before joining TL Network Canada.”
James said that the organization’s main goal is to provide its member agencies with the support that they need.
“Our goal is to always provide our members with new tools and innovative products, including having exceptional training, support and strategic relationships to position them for ultimate success. On the education front, we continue to raise the bar by offering on-demand lessons, webinars, and workshops throughout the year both virtually and in person to help advance our members with a wide variety of learning options.”
