Safe Travels

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has granted the use of its Safe Travels stamp to Vancouver Island. Tourism stakeholders in the Vancouver Island region can apply for use of the Safe Travels stamp once they have met the health and hygiene protocols outlined by the WTTC. The Ladysmith Maritime Society Marina has been approved for use of the stamp.

This stamp allows travellers to easily recognize destinations and tourism businesses around the world that have adopted globally standardized health and hygiene protocols to ensure visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience.
