Travel Tips (By Canada Safety Council):-
- Let people know your travel itinerary – either leave a copy with neighbors or family members, and always keep people informed if your plans happen to change.
- Check to make sure your passports, visas and vaccinations are all up-to-date. Leave copies of your passports, driver’s license, credit cards and other important documents with family members in case of theft)
- While you are away, make it look like someone is home. Arrange to have a car parked in your driveway, plan to have someone pick up your mail and shovel your sidewalk.
- Going somewhere exotic? Plan your travel budget ahead of time and be aware of the local currency. A good travel book on the country will explain how much the Canadian dollar is worth, or you can visit a currency exchange before you leave.
- Research your destination beforehand. What are the entry requirements? Do they require proof of citizenship? Photo identification? Vaccinations? Certain countries may require an “International Certificate of Vaccinations” against infectious diseases before you are allowed to enter. Talk to your local travel agent, physician or the embassy of the country you plan on visiting.
- Do you have a full supply of your prescription medication packed? If not, make sure you fill up before you go. It is also a good idea to contact the nearest consulate to find out the country’s health laws regarding controlled medication. You may be required to obtain a doctor’s written prescription for your medication.
- Purchase travel insurance. If you plan on driving after you arrive, find out the type of insurance you require.
- Luggage identification is important. Clearly identify your luggage with your name, current address and phone number. Put the information both inside and outside of your bag. Remove old claim tag that might confuse handlers. Attach a bright ribbon or bandana to your luggage to help distinguish your bags from similar ones in the baggage claim area.
- Pack a basic first-aid kit for minor emergencies. Include such items as antibiotic ointment, tablets for severe bacterial forms of diarrhea, tablets for relief from diarrhea, anti-fungal cream, antiseptic ointment, aspirin, bandages, lotion for insect bites, electrolyte replacement tablets to replace body salts lost through sweating or diarrhea, lotion for insect bites, insect repellent, safety pins, scissors (not permitted to be carried-on), soap, sunscreen, thermometer and tweezers.
- Inform your bank of where you are going and for how long, this way your account won’t be flagged for suspicious activity when you make purchases in a foreign destination.
- Visit the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority website at www.catsa-acsta.gc.ca for the latest information for air travellers, including the latest security measures.
- Wherever you are going, always make sure to be safe – enjoy the holidays and remember to celebrate prudently with an eye to your health and wellness!
Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Common Wealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Following a tradition inaugurated by King George. The day is also marked by war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918.
The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem ” In Flanders Fields”. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red colour became a symbol for the blood spilled in the war.
