Canada

Canada’s programme, first launched in 1995, introduces and promotes careers in tourism to
high school students across the country.

The Canadian Academy of Travel & Tourism (CATT) plays an integral role in inspiring
Canada’s next generation of travel and tourism leaders, building the skills, knowledge and
experience that will help young people succeed in postsecondary studies, careers in the industry
and other entrepreneurial ventures.

CATT is integrated into a participating school’s curriculum and allows students to specialize
in tourism through a successful work-and-study approach. The program can be offered at
three levels – one, two and gold – each reflecting different levels of student involvement.

CATT have ensured the programme is offered in all regions, including northern and
indigenous communities.
