ACTA is pleased to partner with The Canadian Diversity Initiative

ACTA members receive a savings of up to 30% on diversity and inclusion courses.

As a leader in professional development and continuing education within the Canadian travel industry, the Association of Canadian Travel Agencies (ACTA) is building on our commitment to elevate the level of professionalism by releasing online courses covering Diversity and Inclusion training for the workplace.

The Canadian Diversity Initiative offers made-in-Canada diversity and inclusion online training, and is used by companies, non-profits, government agencies and educational institutions across Canada. The online courses are reviewed and updated regularly to ensure that content is accurate and the learning experience is user-friendly, engaging, and practical. The courses have been created using responsive design, so participants can learn using a phone, tablet or computer. The only requirement is an internet connection.

Individual Purchases: Buy Now

If you're purchasing diversity and inclusion training for yourself, or for a small group of people, Buy Now is the perfect option. You receive a direct savings of 10%! Simply select your course(s) and the number of units you need and pay by credit card. You immediately receive both a receipt and your PIN/Password combination(s) via email.  Training can begin right away and a Certificate of Completion is available as soon as mandatory testing is successfully completed.

Employer Purchases: Set Up An Employer Account

If you're purchasing DEI training for 10 or more employees, you may want to set up an Employer Account before ordering training. An Employer Account allows you to log in to an employer console where you can easily order, distribute, monitor, and manage training records. An Employer Account is complimentary AND you get an additional 20% discount on all orders.

It's very easy to set up an Employer Account. Just click "let's chat" and fill in the form. We promise to get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that administrative offices for The Canadian Diversity Initiative are in Nova Scotia. We check email from 9am - 5pm ADT, Monday - Friday. We do not check email in the evening, on weekends, or on statutory holidays (which is good for our mental health and work-life balance - and these things are important). We promise to reply as soon as possible, within these parameters. Thanks for your patience.

Unconscious Bias Training

Unconscious Bias

We each have unconscious biases and we take these biases to work with us. Left unaddressed, they undermine logical decision-making and contribute to a toxic workplace, where respect and opportunity are not equally distributed. Unconscious Bias Training helps learners deepen their understanding of these biases and explores ways to mitigate their negative effects. Providing employees with this training is a positive step towards creating a respectful, inclusive workplace culture.

The course is self-paced. Most participants will complete training in less than 30 minutes. This course is also available in French.
