Globally Approved Travel Experiences (GATE-way) Program
Shared Vision … Shared Future

The leaders in the tourism industry in BC and Canada are committed to ensuring that BC and Canada continue to be seen as the best place in the world in which to invest and travel by providing quality assurance to investors and consumers in the travel industry.

Currently there is no way visitors to BC can be assured of safe, healthy, and environmentally friendly travel experiences. There is no provincial or national certification program for outdoor adventure tourism operators, resorts, ecotourism, cultural tourism and the like. The long-term risk to the province and the nation is considerable – no product quality assurance for investors and travellers to Canada! Getting visitors to come to visit BC and Canada is challenging enough – but ensuring that they have a safe, healthy, and quality experience will ensure they tell their friends and come back for more! Conversely, having no quality assurance program in place lays us all open to the risks and liabilities of hazardous operations, which could harm the overall reputation, stability and growth of tourism in BC and Canada.

We recognize the need for a provincial and national certification program for ensuring safe, healthy, and environmentally friendly travel experiences. To this end, we are forming a task force that will focus on creating and implementing the Globally Approved Travel Experiences (GATE-way) Program.

We are committed to bringing this vision into reality not only because of the obvious value it brings to the whole country but also because it is an incredible example of the people of Canada coming together to form public-private partnerships and taking action on the issue of sustainability.

Just as the SuperHost product trains and certifies workers in the travel industry and guarantees a high quality of service, our Globally Approved Travel Experiences (GATE-way) Program will certify the tourism operations themselves. Travellers to BC and Canada will be able to verify in advance that the tourism companies meet basic standards, are approved and rated as safe, healthy, and ecoFriendly (using a 5 leaf rating system). The travel industry will be safeguarded against the considerable risks and liabilities of uncertified tourism operations.

We are seeking support for the Globally Approved Travel Experiences (GATE-way) Program and to collaborators committed to bringing this vision into reality.
