Welcome to our website

Canadian Inbound Tourism Association - Asia Pacific (CITAP) is committed to further developing Canada as the preferred destination for Asia Pacific travellers. CITAP was established in 1997 by the leaders of our Receptive Tour Operators. They had the vision to increase the business from the Asia Pacific market into Canada by working collectively on marketing initiatives and by approaching our various levels of government to support the needs of our industry.  

Now, nearly 20 years later, our membership has grown to be 300 strong from coast to coast within Canada and also from the United States. It is now our goal as a Board of Directors along with our committees and the entire membership to review and revisit the mandate originaly set out by our founders. We are fortunate to have recently welcomed Joe Volk as our first Executive Director for the association. We welcome his leadership and thoughtful work to achieve goals set by our organization. 
2016 is off to a very solid start in each of our Asia Pacific markets. We look forward to strengthening partnerships and redefining our priorities together. There are tremendous business opportunites in our industry and we shall continue our legacy to offer the best for our members.

Please contact us to find out more about the benefits of becoming a CITAP member. Let's work together to make the most of our CITAP membership! We have lots to be proudof and lots to do yet to be even stronger in the markets!
