TIANB is lobbying with its national representative organization the Tourism Industry Association of Canada to take a proactive role in representing its membership on the Credit/Debit Card gouging merchant fees.

In addition, TIANB has decided to take a more active role in the "Don't Stick it to us" coalition work. Lead by the Retail Council of Canada, the position of the coalition is to work with the federal Government officials to develop a voluntary code of conduct. In a recent conference call, we found out that CFIB had taken a different position on the issue than that of the coalition.
