SITE Canada

The place to be for incentive industry professionals; offering deep connections, ongoing learning, and extensive resources.

 

Hello!

At SITE Canada, our members are champions of the global incentive travel sector. Our mission is to create opportunities for members and industry to connect and share experiences through education, networking and community. As a member of our organization, you will be engaged with welcoming and enthusiastic colleagues.

Our group is comprised of the full spectrum of our industry: incentive houses, corporate buyers, hotels and resorts, airlines, cruise lines, DMCs, ground transportation companies, DMOs, speaker bureaus, trade publications, students, and supporting off-site venues, entertainment, and attractions.

SITE Canada actively connects to our membership through Education Day and ongoing professional development webinars, annual golf tournament, regular communications including newsletter 5x/year, vibrant social media presence, Holiday Social, AGM, and Young Leader events. We thank our dedicated sponsors for their support of our progressive outreach programs.

"SITE has been a true oasis during these turbulent times. Pivoting from an extremely busy lifestyle to suddenly having northing to do is a challenge. SITE provided a real sense of community and belonging for so many...real people (just like me) who are always willing to step up and help out whenever needed. I had the pleasure of volunteering with the SITE Education Day (virtually) this year and found the lessons learned invaluable. The committee members - forever positive - no matter the challenges, have become like family." Sonja de Roo, SITE Canada member

Chapter Highlights:

  • In 2020, SITE Canada was awarded the SITE Chapter Excellence Award in Virtual Engagement. Creative membership outreach during lockdown included a gratitude campaign, social media boost, newsletters, seeds of hope campaign, and an impressive 22 virtual events. SITE’s bi-weekly virtual cocktails and conversations provided a safe haven for members to connect, support, and motivate each other.
  • We are very proud of our recent Sustainability Certificate from SITE Global. SITE Canada is embracing necessary environmental, social and economic change leaving a positive legacy, one event at a time!
  • SITE Canada has led the way in developing our Young Leaders with robust programs to get them set for success. Recruiting and nurturing the next generation is a top priority for SITE Canada.
