ACTA, IATA, host first meeting of the Canada Travel Fraud Prevention Group

Earlier this month, ACTA in partnership with IATA, jointly hosted the first meeting Canada Travel Fraud Prevention (CTFP) Group held at the IATA offices in Montreal.

The purpose of the CTFP is to gather leaders in the various travel industry sectors to unite against fraud, which impacts all participants in the Canadian travel industry value chain, including passengers, travel agents and airlines.

According to an ACTA news release, the main objectives of the CTFP Group are:

  • Build a Canadian community against fraud
  • Explore fraudulent data sharing initiatives through industry solutions available in the Market
  • Share global and regional best practices
  • Raise awareness of fraud prevention tools available in the market
  • Build relationships with the law enforcement authorities, and
  • Global Days of Action: raise awareness, coordinate, and provide feedback after events

Through the CTFP Group, ACTA says it hopes to build cases based on shared fraud data and present them to law enforcement for further investigation and legal action.
Members are encouraged to share fraudulent cases with ACTA and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
