    Our first organized in person members event in 2 years (without widespread restrictions) was a great success. 22 members came out for the first of 2 sessions with fellow member Bob Sung. His business, A Wok Around Chinatown, helped to refresh members and inform members regarding our Chinatown in 2022.

    Many items were covered, facts shared and myths dispelled thanks to the hard work of Bob.

    We have a second event happening on April 13. It is sold out, but contact us to go on the waiting list.


    Please see the first album HERE

    Big thanks to the members who were able to get make the open house hosted by CeresCorp at the cruise terminal. 

    There have been changes to the terminal which should allow for better flow of passengers. They include, but are not limited to:

    1. There is more room to keep groups in designated areas. 
    2. The exit to the meet and greet section has shifted EAST approximately 15 metres. The former exit will now be a screening area.
    3. Guests being dropped off will have a new and expanded US customs screen area that is no longer in the centre of the arrivals Hal, but has been shifted to the Easternmost Wall.
    4. Small Tour and Private Transportation have a slightly modified 2 lane pick up area next to door 2. Exact details are being worked out, but upon dispatch from the holding lot you will be directed to a dedicated lane to pick up guests.
    5. New paint, lines and dividers are in place, as well as a brand new operations team. Please be sure to exercise and caution patience with and for guests during the first few days of operation. Everyone will be getting used to the new flows
    6. There is First Come First Served luggage storage provided by Grey Line West Coast Sightseeing. See details HERE
    There are photos for Members to explore in this album.

    Hello! 

    Good news! The directory has had a slight update and you can now more easily filter by specialty, position or language

    As this is entirely dependant on members having filled out their profiles, this information will continuously be changing.

    Enjoy!

    Hello!

    Please take a few minutes to login to your account in the top right corner. We have updated the profile information that you can fill in. It also allows you the section to provide an 'elevator pitch' for potential clients. For now, all information is only going to be available to members, but as you can now change the privacy settings for all of your information in your profile, we may enable a public viewing function of the directory for potential clients to contact you directly. It is very similar to the idea our sister organization, the Tourist Guide Association of Toronto (formerly CTGA of Toronto) is doing here.

    All information is yours, and our Privacy Policy covers that here. As mentioned though, for now all information is only available to members.

    The beginning of the next phase has begun with the website. Please login to your profile to enable the viewing of our MEMBERS only area and our DIRECTORY.

    It is still in progress, but feel free to contribute to the discussion with suggestions for the website.

    We know the directory has been missed. It is back. Please be sure to login and check which information you wish to share (or not).

    Please note, to ensure members security and privacy, certain areas of the website are privileged access only for members. You must login to view this.

    By default, information put in is members only. You may list no information if you wish but you must login to access your profile and delete.

    Hello Everyone

    You may be looking at a different email address for these messages. 

    ctgaofbc@wildapricot.org

    Rest assured this is from the Association. If you could please add this email to your safe list, that would be great. We wish to avoid you missing messages from us and having them go to your SPAM or JUNK folder would be unfortunate.

    We are working to have our organization email be the return sender, but the is taking a bit of time

    Thank you!

    Hello

    If you have navigated to our website recently, you may be noticing some changes. 

    The website has had its (soft) launch just recently. As such, not all the functionality you were used to from our previous website is currently available.

    As we continue with the work, these functions should be restored. They may not be exactly as they once were, so please be patient as we work through the new system.

    We will have a Members Only section again. That is currently not available but we are working on it. Please stay tuned and check back here for updates.

    If you notice some issues with the website, or have some ideas for the new website as we rebuild, please contact us HERE 

    Here is a small list of known issues:

    • Formatting of certain texts isn't the same
    • Some pages are loading oddly on certain browsers

    Here is a small list of upcoming functions:

    • Members Only Section
    • Internal Members Directory
    • Members are able to update all their own information, and control what is available to be shared to other members or the general public.
