Why You Should Join

Joining the Canadian Tour Guide Association of British Columbia (CTGA of BC) provides a range of benefits aimed at supporting the professional growth and development of tour guides. The association focuses on industry advocacy, working to represent the interests of tour guides and related professionals within the tourism sector. This includes highlighting member achievements and industry developments during meetings, which also serve as opportunities for professional recognition and sharing of best practices.

Members have access to a variety of resources and events designed to enhance their skills and expand their professional network. These include certification programs that recognize and validate the expertise of tour guides, mentoring opportunities to facilitate learning and development, and knowledge guide meetings that focus on the cultural, historical, and natural aspects of British Columbia. Additionally, CTGA of BC organizes participation in showcases, conventions, and tradeshows, providing valuable networking opportunities and insights into industry trends. Other membership benefits include access to a commentary library, familiarization (fam) trips, a tourism challenge passport, and a port pass, all aimed at enriching the tour guiding experience and promoting personal and professional growth within the tourism industry.

Do You Live Outside of the Vancouver Area?

The CTGA of BC has many Members who live not only outside of Vancouver, the province, but even the country. Although these Members rarely get to any of the meetings or events we hold person, they enjoy the benefits of the Members Only section of our website. As well, our meetings have the ability to Zoom or Livestream if circumstances require.
