Member of Parliament Diane Finley is encouraging residents of Haldimand-Norfolk to learn about the “Three Rs” of international travel:
• READ-UP on relevant topics such as safety, security, and local laws in the destination country by consulting our Travel Reports and Warnings.
• REGISTER with the Registration of Canadians Abroad service, so that we can contact and assist in an emergency.
• REACH US at our *Emergency Operations Centre in Ottawa if a Canadian experiences problems abroad.
At travel.gc.ca, you can also discover an abundance of safe-travel resources related to dual citizenship, travelling with children and other important topics.
