We pride ourselves on the effort we make to keep your children safe and secure on our field trips. Day in and day out, year after year, this is our first and highest priority.
For an exhaustive list of our safety measures and precautions, go to our Safety page in the students section of our website.
Every group is accompanied through the day by a professional tour guide (and a licensed guide where licensing exists), and VISIT CANADA makes a place available for an adult chaperone from your child’s school (usually a faculty member) for each tenth student.
Each chaperone receives our copyrighted Manual for Chaperones, containing a wealth of extremely useful information about how to anticipate and prevent problems long before they occur, and every guide is provided with a copy of our safety Manual for Guides and Escorts.
We also provide every group with a copy of our Field Trip Safety Manual which contains an abundance of important information that we’ve compiled over the years about pedestrian safety, fire safety, accident prevention and other related safety and security topics. We are very proud of these copyrighted manuals which, as far as we know, are the only reference works of their kind in existence.
Finally, we select our hotels on the basis of safety, security and cleanliness, and we never use marginal hotels, in marginal neighborhoods for kids that wouldn’t be perfectly appropriate for adults. Moreover, we contract with each hotel to provide overnight security in the hallways to keep members of your child’s group in their rooms after curfew and nonmembers out.
In short, we want your kids to be as safe and secure on our trips as they would have been if they had not left home.
We are parents of school aged kids and we care about yours.
