Strategic Partnerships

Hotel Association of Canada (HAC) Strategic Partners are leading organizations and companies involved in a wide range of industry sectors and activities. Although these areas of activities may differ, they are all committed to their work with the lodging industry.


Participating in select HAC activities provides the Strategic Partners with the unique occasion of forging a broad network of national and international contacts. In the process, Partners gain an opportunity to share their expertise, work closely with their lodging customers, acquire valuable insight into the latest industry developments and work with HAC and its Members in providing solutions to the industry's challenges and priorities.

For more information on any of our Strategic Partners or on becoming a Strategic Partner please contact Gary Graham, Manager, Program Operations at 613-237-7149 x 107 or
