While the CTGA of BC is a professional association, representing many tour guides and tour directors, we are unable to make specific recommendations about any one individual and/or business as we are not an employment agency.
Members are expected to operate and behave in a professional manner, but the CTGA cannot be held responsible nor liable for the quality or conduct of any member.
Our members do participate in our numerous meetings, fam (familiarization) trips and educational gatherings to constantly improve and upgrade their many skills. All of our members work as employees or as independents on a freelance basis for anyone who needs group handling services. This also includes conventions, incentive tours, or special interest groups or individuals, etc.
Arrangements for any specific employment conditions, if needed, and for remuneration will be made by each of our members.
Thank you for your interest in The Canadian Tour Guide Association of BC.
