Coding on a cold, wet and windy day can be difficult for anyone in a hurry.

That’s why the Federal Government is putting the brakes on a growing trend in which Canadians are moving more quickly to their destination and less often to places that have cold weather restrictions. 

The National Travel Alert System is the first system in Canada to be designed specifically for travel, and the system is aimed at ensuring that all travellers are treated equally in the face of a potential crisis, said a news release from Transport Canada. 

“The alert system allows us to quickly identify the most important and critical areas where there is a risk of an incident, so we can respond to the situation more quickly,” said Transport Minister Marc Garneau in the release. 

Traveling on a snowmobile is not an option. 

This is not a drill for snowmobilers.

This is a drill to prepare for a snowstorm. 

Carrying your backpack with you is not allowed, no matter what the weather forecast calls for. 

We need to prepare, and we need to be prepared.

– Garneau statement  This comes just a week after Transport Canada issued a national travel advisory saying it was planning to reduce the number of days in the winter to between one and five in order to reduce travel risk. 

In other words, travellers in the West Bay region are now required to travel on a longer, wetter and windier route than before. 

What is the NTSB doing? 

The NTSW is the Federal government’s weather forecasting arm, which manages weather forecasts and forecast data to ensure that weather conditions and weather events are as predictable as possible, and that the environment is in a condition to support the growth of tourism. 

However, the NTFS also provides data for travel planning, and it has also recently taken the unusual step of updating the National Travel Advisory to include a cold weather alert. 

It has come at a time when there has been a spike in travellers heading to the West Coast to celebrate a new year. 

According to a recent CBC News story , the number is growing, with more than 30,000 travellers travelling to the Bay this weekend. 

But in the wake of the NTA announcement, a number of Canadian travel agencies are saying they are getting fewer travellers to the area, and are looking to reduce their travel volume. 

As of today, the National Transit Association of Canada has issued a travel warning, saying the travel season is coming to an end in the Bay Area. 

Travellers who are unable to travel to the region due to travel restrictions may also be able to purchase travel insurance from CTC Canada, the company that operates the NTC, if their travel plans have been cancelled. 

Here’s what you need to know about the NRTC travel alert.

“We have a very active and growing business and the business is very reliant on our clients to be able provide the best experience for their customers,” said Paul Dolan, senior vice president of NTC Canada.

“That’s why we’re trying to get as many people to the west coast as we possibly can, but we also want to ensure we’re still providing the service that our clients want to get to, and not just the best travel experience for our customers.” 

Travel insurance can be purchased from CFC TravelInsurance, and there are many other travel insurance companies that are offering coverage, including Canadian Travel Insurers. 

Are there snowmobiles in the area? 


A snowmobile was never part of the plan to increase travel in the region. 

There is a special section in the NTPS that allows travellers to purchase a snow vehicle permit for up to one vehicle per month.

This permit is valid for two years, and is valid only for use within the Bay and the Peninsula. 

You can find a map of the areas in the National Transport Area on Transport Canada’s website. 

How do I get my passport or ID to the airport? 

To ensure you are safe, the Transport Canada office is asking Canadians to use their passport or driver’s licence. 

All Canadians are required to carry a Canadian Passport and ID. 

Why is the snowmobile in the way? 

A large number of people have travelled to the South Bay to celebrate the holiday season, which is a popular destination for snowmobile enthusiasts in the province. 

Many have been frustrated by the delays and the increased traffic and the lack of snowmobile parking.

As of now, there are no plans to change the number and location of snowmotorists in the South Coast region.
