WE Travel is Canada’s largest union owned and operated travel agency. We source the best union-approved travel deals, and provide specialized travel services for union member travel, meetings and conferences.
On behalf of Canada’s unions, we:
- Negotiate with union hotels and volume-buy accommodation blocks for meetings and conventions. WE Travel has contracted over 86,000 room nights across Canada and negotiated $240,000 in cost savings and other benefits for our brothers and sisters.
- Streamline travel and accommodation bookings for meeting and conference planners. Let us help you put systems in place to manage your conference travel with ease. Among our specialized services, we develop custom conference websites so that your members can go online to make their travel bookings. We send customized reports so that you can monitor everything every step of the way. We can even provide an on-site travel desk and travel specialist who will work at your conference to personally handle any travel issues, questions or changes that arise.
- Provide full service travel agency services for travel on air, bus, train, and car rental. You and your members can make reservations with us over the phone and some bookings can be done online on the WE Travel website, or through the custom sites we develop for conferences. Our client profiles help us serve you better and make sure your reservations suit your travel preferences.
- Make all travel bookings according to your union’s travel policy and issue monthly reports. We maintain a database with your union’s travel policy, as well as individual client profiles. This makes it easy for anyone in your organization to book with us, while making it impossible for someone to make a booking that falls outside your policy. And our reports are designed to help you to monitor all travel, manage travel budgets and plan for future events.
- Support union businesses and the labour movement. WE Travel tenders bookings with unionized, wheelchair accessible facilities and is committed to booking with unionized travel providers whenever possible. And we donate roughly 50% of our annual profit to labour initiatives through the Columbia Institute Foundation, SHARE, BC Forum and through the fundraising initiatives of our union brothers and sisters.
Our clients include: Canadian Labour Congress, CUPE National, CUPE Ontario, CUPE BC, CEP National, Ontario Federation of Labour, Labour Education Centre, Canadian Media Guild, BC Federation of Labour, BC Government Employees Union, Columbia Institute, United Steelworkers of Canada, BC Teachers Federation, Public Service Alliance of Canada, BC Hospital Employees Union and the Health Sciences Association.
Union-owned and operated since 1971, WE Travel is a full-service travel and conference provider able to accommodate all your business and leisure travel needs. WE Travel serves the entire country with online booking and 24/7 telephone support. How can we help you?
