. Need to know.
Dependent Child Or Non-Depedent, When To Tell Employee Travel And
Recognition.
Employee Travel and Recognition would like to advise employees and retirees
that a form confirming their child’s dependency is no longer required for
children aged 19-24. By definition, a child is no longer considered dependent
if he/she is no longer a full-time student, works more than part-time, is
married and/or ceases to reside with you. To remove your child’s name from your
Card Holder Information Profile (CHIP), you’re requested to send Employee
Travel an e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call them at
1-866-473-4732. Failure to notify Employee Travel and Recognition that your
child is no longer a dependent will be considered an abuse of travel
privileges. There are no changes for children under the age of 18.

Effective Monday Sept 30th,  the YVR Employee Travel and Recognition office
at the Ops Centre.  no longer offer any walkup counter service.
We'll still be here for phone calls 604 270-5667 or 1 866-473-4732, fax
at 604 276-4892 or email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
We will no doubt inconvenience quite a few retirees and widow(er)s who
won't know until they get here. We will still have tickets available
outside of the office when we are here if they come in for u-writes or
Family Affair validation forms. Travel Card photos will be taken at the People
Services counter down the hall.
We will be increasing our incoming phone lines and will concentrate on
answering calls and emails. We are looking into a new phone setup which could
allow for call distribution between the offices, and a queuing system so
that you could hold for the next available agent. This may be some time
away.


Air Canada Makes Changes To Taipei Service For Winter Schedule. Effective Oct.
29, Air Canada will replace its daily A-340-300 service from Vancouver to
Taipei with a three times weekly codeshare service on EVA Air for the 2002-03
winter schedule. Other connections are also available with United Airlines via
Tokyo Narita or San Francisco.

Air Canada improves schedule between Canada and Israel.  In addition to its
four
times weekly non-stop flights between Toronto and Tel Aviv, effective Nov. 1,
Air Canada will offer daily service on a codeshare basis with El Al between
Toronto and Tel Aviv, as well as the choice of convenient daily connecting
flights via Frankfurt to Tel Aviv on a codeshare basis with its Star Alliance™
partner Lufthansa. These new codeshare services are subject to government
approval.
