Many individuals have questions about whether their business or activities which include travel services fall under the legislated exemptions or whether they are captured under the Travel Industry Act, 2002 and Ontario Regulation 26/05. Section 4 of the Act prohibits persons from acting as travel agents or travel wholesalers unless they are registered under the Act.  However, there are some provisions that allow persons to be exempt from having to register under the Act. The exemptions are set out in Section 2 of the Regulation. 

TICO has prepared the following Exemption Guidelines to assist with the interpretation of the exemptions under the Act and Regulation.  If you are uncertain whether an activity would require registration or have questions related to the Exemption Guidelines, please contact TICO for more information.
