Tourism Thunder Bay and the Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission are working to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our offices and have made the P.O.S.T. Promise and our team members are following the five key steps to workplace safety:#SafeTravels

Tourism Thunder Bay has been awarded a #SafeTravels Stamp by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) for adopting health and hygiene global standardized protocols.

The WTTC in conjunction with the industry, including the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) has created a self-certified Safe Travel Stamp based on worldwide industry protocols the WTTC has put together for every aspect of the hospitality and tourism sector.  

The specially designed stamp will allow travellers to recognise governments and companies around the world which have adopted health and hygiene global standardised protocols – so consumers can experience ‘Safe Travels’.

Eligible companies such as hotels, restaurants, airlines, cruise lines, tour operators, attractions, short term rentals, car rentals, outdoor shopping, transportation and airports, will be able to use the stamp once the health and hygiene protocols, outlined by WTTC, have been implemented. 

Please note, in order to apply for the Safe Travels Stamp, your business must currently be open and operating.
