  • Title: Policy
    Descriptive info: Air Access Position Statement.. International visitors are a critical component of the Western Canadian ski business, accounting for 24% of Total Skier Visits.. Unfortunately, this business has experienced dramatic declines in recent years.. In fact, International Skier Visits share of Total Canadian Skier Visits declined from 22% in.. 2007-08 to 15% in 2011-12.. (source: CSC).. This downward trend mirrors major declines experienced in other segments of the Canadian Tourism Industry.. Indeed, International Tourist Arrivals to Canada declined 19% from 2002 to 2012, while the USA experienced 46% growth over the same period.. (source: CTC / Statistics Canada / US OTTI).. From our perspective, one of the primary factors driving declining International Tourist Arrivals to Canada is our lack of competitive air access.. This is a direct result of our excessive taxation of air travel and a lack of fair and open competition.. Therefore, we strongly support any and all efforts to reduce the tax burden on air travel and to increase competition within the airline industry.. Canadian aviation is plagued by regulatory impediments, high operating costs and excessive taxation when compared to the U.. S.. Taxes and fees include the CATSA Security Fee, AIF, HST, NAV CANADA fees, and various border fees.. These costs manifest themselves in high airfares, which discourage inbound international tourism and result in significant passenger leakage to U.. border airports:.. According to the Canadian Airports Council, more than 75 per cent of Canadians live within 90 minutes of the U.. border.. The council estimates that last year alone, 4.. 8 million passengers drove to a U..  ...   a lack of competition in the Canadian Airline Industry is a key reason that our air fares are not competitive with those offered in the U.. :.. But the lion’s share of the premium charged to Canadian air travellers is courtesy of the airlines.. Not that Canadian airlines are hugely profitable nowadays, but neither are they terribly efficient.. The Conference Board itemizes the differences in wages, productivity and aircraft leasing costs between Canadian and U.. carriers, but the long and the short of it is competition.. The U.. has lots of it.. Canada, not so much.. (source: Financial Post Magazine, ‘The real reason Canadians flock to U.. airports is our lack of competition’, November 6, 2012).. Canada’s ‘Blue Sky’ air policy, established in 2006, incorporates ‘Open Skies’ type agreements on a selective basis.. Under this policy, the federal government, working closely with the major Canadian airlines, decides on the desired level of market competition.. Most importantly, the tourism sector and other stakeholders are not afforded the opportunity to provide meaningful input.. With $79 billion in annual revenues, the Canadian Tourism Industry is approximately four times larger than the Canadian Airline Industry.. (source: Statistics Canada, NACC).. Therefore, from a policy perspective, it does not make sense to continue to protect the interests of the airline industry at the expense of the tourism industry.. Accordingly, we urge the federal government to migrate from its protectionist ‘Blue Sky’ policy, to a true ‘Open Skies’ policy, in order to enhance the availability and affordability of air access to Canada.. Last Update: April 2, 2013..

    Descriptive info: May 8, 2012 Position Statement.. The first BC Family Day will take place in February 2013.. The BC Provincial Government is currently considering the second and third Mondays in February as alternative dates for this holiday.. The third Monday in February is a holiday in the USA and five Canadian provinces; thus, many BC Ski Resorts are already operating at full capacity on this weekend.. Therefore, having BC Family Day on this day would diminish the potential for British Columbians to enjoy BC Ski Resorts and other tourism experiences throughout the province.. Moroeover, it would.. result in a significant lost economic opportunity for the province.. Accordingly,.. CWSAA is advocating for the BC Provincial Government.. to have BC Family  ...   Social Benefits.. :.. The incremental revenues received by the BC Tourism Industry would result in additional tax revenues for the government, helping to support social programs.. Family Benefits.. British Columbians would have enhanced access to Ski Resorts, and other BC Tourism experiences, resulting in a.. more enjoyable Family Day.. May 28, 2012 Update.. The BC Provincial Government issued the following News Release on May 28, 2012:.. BC Family Day News Release May 28 2012.. pdf.. CWSAA would like to express its sincere appreciation to the Provincial Government for its decision to schedule BC Family Day for the second Monday in February.. We would also like to thank the many British Columbians who supported our position on this issue..

  • Title: CTC Funding
    Descriptive info: The 2012 Federal Budget indicates that funding for the Canadian Tourism Commission will be cut to $58 million in 2013-14, from $72 million in 2012-13, and $99 million in 2001-02.. While we recognize the importance of balancing the federal budget, we are concerned that ongoing cuts to CTC funding will exacerbate declines in International Tourist Arrivals to Canada.. In light of this, we support calls from the Canadian Tourism Industry to restore CTC funding to  ...   is a logical source of funding for the CTC.. Some tourism industry stakeholders have suggested that an.. 'International Visitor Arrival Levy'.. would be an acceptable means by which to fund the CTC.. We strongly oppose this option.. In our view, such an approach would increase Canadian air travel costs, thereby exacerbating our lack of competitiveness with respect to air access.. Clearly, this would significantly undermine our efforts to reverse declines in international visitation to Canada..

  • Title: CWSAA Racer Pass
    Descriptive info: CWSAA Racer Pass Qualifications / Guidelines.. General.. The Canada West Ski Areas Association believes that deserving young Ski and Snowboard athletes should be given all the support possible to reach their goal to one day represent Canada in Olympic Games, World Championships or World Cups.. For this reason CWSAA created the ALL AREAS COMPETITORS PASS to facilitate eligible athletes access to western Canada's Ski and Snowboard Resorts for the purpose of training and competition.. All athletes must understand that the use of the competitors pass is a privilege that carries with it the responsibility to represent their respective Sports Discipline in a sportsman-like fashion showing leadership to their fellow athletes.. Who will qualify for a pass in the 2013/2014 season?.. Competitors belonging to an ACCREDITED NATIONAL SPORTS BODY in a CWSAA Province, promoting the sports of Alpine Ski Racing, Ski Cross, Freestyle Ski Competitions and Snowboard Competitions.. ACCREDITED means the sports body is representing Canada in Olympic, World Championship and World Cup Competitions.. All athletes must be must be actively training and competing in disciplines that are part of the Olympic Games, World Championships and World Cups.. All athletes must meet the following age eligibility rules for 2013/2014.. - Alpine Skiing athletes and Ski Cross born between 1993 and 1997 or in 1991 or 1992 with a letter from their National Sports Organization*.. - Freestyle Skiing athletes not including Ski Cross born between 1994 and 1998 or in 1992 or 1993 with a letter from their National Sports Organization*.. - Snowboard athletes in Alpine, Snowboard Cross and Big Air born between 1994 and 1998 or in 1992 or 1993 with a letter from their National Sports Organization*.. - Snowboard athletes in Half Pipe and Slopestyle born between 1994 and 2000 or in 1992 or 1993 with a letter from their National Sports Organization*.. *Special consideration may be given to athletes 2 years over the base age range with a letter from their respective National Sports Organization confirming that the athlete is under serious consideration for nomination to their National Team in the upcoming competition year.. Carded members of the Canadian Disabled Alpine Ski Team who are permanent residents in one of the Provinces that are part of CWSAA.. Travelling Provincial and Club Coaches or Provincial Team Managers may also qualify.. Additional Guidelines  ...   for special consideration for Competitor Passes by providing a written submission to the Chairman of the CWSAA Competitor Pass Committee including their athlete development plan and reasons why their athletes will require Canada West access to ski areas.. Pass Distribution to Provincial Sports Associations.. The distribution of the competitors' passes is based solely on the number of FIS registered athletes born between 1993 and 1997 for Alpine Skiing and Ski Cross and between 1994 and 1998 for other Freestyle and all Snowboard disciplines.. All Provincial Sports Associations should submit their Competitor Pass Applications along with a list of FIS registered athletes including each athlete's FIS points (where applicable) and date of birth to the CWSAA office no later than August 23rd 2013.. Each provincial discipline will get their percentage of passes based on eligible requests submitted by all Provincial Sports Organizations and out of the total number of passes approved for distribution.. Disqualification.. An athlete who was disciplined for pass infractions or other disciplinary issues in a host ski area such as breach of the Alpine Skier/Rider Responsibility Code or who has received sanctions by their PSO during the previous season will automatically be disqualified from purchasing the All Area Competitors Passes in future years.. Athletes who, during the course of the competition season discontinue participating in competitions or regularly scheduled training programs of their teams, except due to injury, must return their pass to the respective Provincial Governing Body forthwith; a prorated refund will be given less a non†refundable handling charge.. Failure to return these passes will be considered fraud and is just cause for prosecution.. Furthermore any governing body that does not properly monitor this issue or that knowingly allows athletes to continue using the pass against the above rule will jeopardize their eligibility for future competitors passes.. The Provincial Governing Bodies may disqualify an athlete for other disciplinary reasons besides pass infractions.. The cancellation of the All†Area Competitors Pass may be one of the disciplinary actions open to them.. List of Olympic, World Championship and World Cup Disciplines.. ALPINE FREESTYLE SNOWBOARD..
