The Travel Industry Council of Ontario would like to remind consumers of the various useful resources available to them when considering their future travel plans to areas affected by Hurricane Irma. 

Consumers already booked for future travel to affected areas should stay in contact with their travel agent and/or online travel agency for any updates.  If travelling with a tour operator, you may also wish to refer to the tour operator’s website for any updates on future travel to your destination.

Those consumers wishing to purchase future travel to destinations affected by Hurricane Irma are recommended to contact their local travel agent or online travel agency for guidance.


The Government of Canada website has official information and advice on situations that may affect the safety and well-being of Canadians travelling abroad.  Travel advisories are continually being updated to ensure the information is accurate and is an invaluable resource prior to making your plans as well as when travelling abroad.

The Government of Canada’s Travel Advisories may be accessed at
