Special Action Fund
The Special Action Fund is a vital resource when a threat to the rights and privileges of our members is imminent. Every dollar donated is held in a separate account that is independent of the daily operating budget of the CSA. The special action fund is utilized when the CSA does not have the time to seek donations, and must immediately engage in government lobbying and consultation.
In 2002, the CSA appeared before U.S. Congress to fight passage of a bill that would have limited Canadians to a thirty day visit to the U.S. With the assistance of U.S. governors and major travel industry groups, the CSA successfully defeated this restrictive bill. The special action fund was a vital resource to the CSA in ensuring Canadian access to the U.S.
Is the ongoing war against terrorism and its effects on travel in and outside of Canada a concern to you?
Is the limit on the amount of prescription medication you can obtain at one time, despite travelling for an extended period, a concern to you?
Or, if you simply believe that your voice needs to be heard by government, help the CSA fight for your rights when Canadian or U.S. legislation may negatively affect your ability to travel.
We cannot predict the political future for travelling Canadians. We do know that it will be a road of unexpected twists and turns. We can navigate them with the help of the special action fund.
