Leeds Grenville MP Gord Brown wants to remind constituents to be safe and prepared to ensure your holiday travel is problem free. Canada’s team of dedicated consular officials assist thousands of Canadian travellers abroad each year.
They provide consular assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through more than 260 points of service in 150 countries. However, there are some situations that not even a Christmas miracle can resolve.
Canadians should recognize that they are subject to the local laws of the country in which they are travelling, which are often different from those in Canada. Buy travel and medical insurance. Stay up-to-date up-to-date on country-specific advice and information which can be found at: http://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories.
Know how to reach help when you are overseas. You can email the Canadian consulate at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is staffed at all times.
