Staying in touch

While you are away from home, make sure you monitor the points of contact you provided your carrier at time of booking for notifications of any delays, cancellations or schedule changes.

Wherever you go, be sure someone back home knows where you will be by leaving them with a copy of your travel itinerary.

Canadian residents visiting a foreign country should register beforehand with Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada so they can be easily reached and assisted in the event of an emergency – natural disasters or civil unrest – abroad, or be informed about an emergency at home.

Go to to register on-line and find information about safe travel in foreign countries and an up-to-date list of addresses and contact numbers for Canadian government offices abroad.
