Breakfast - Reminder

Hotels may offer various types of breakfast as part of their service, either at cost or as part of the room rate. When making their travel plans, employees should verify the hotel breakfast offerings and determine whether or not it meets their needs. If not, other hotels options should be explored or their individual needs discussed with their manager for approval of a reimbursement based on receipts, up to meal allowance amount.

Winter tires - Reminder

Although it is not mandatory in all the province, winter tires are mandatory on some highways in British Columbia. We encourage you to verify with the car rental company if they are required for the area you will be traveling to.

In the province of Québec, snow tires are mandatory on all vehicles between December 15 and March 15.

For all other provinces and territories, there are no laws concerning mandatory use of snow tires.
