CANADIAN SNOWBIRD ASSOCIATION
As a national not-for-profit advocacy organization dedicated to actively defending and improving the rights and privileges of all travelling Canadians.
The Canadian Snowbird Association (CSA) is a
national not-for-profit advocacy organization. It is dedicated to actively
defending and improving the rights and privileges of Canadian travellers.
In 1992, one thousand and ninety-two dedicated Canadians came together in a show of absolute unity to stage a rally in Lakeland, Florida. Many were seniors living on fixed or limited incomes. Some held property in the United States. Some were simply on vacation. All believed in the Canada Health Act, and the basic right of Canadians to receive the same treatment abroad as Canadians receive at home.
What started as a crusade to find affordable emergency out-of-country travel health coverage has grown into a national organization, dedicated to preserving the rights of all Canadians, the Canada Health Act and our national medicare system.
Representing Canadians worldwide, from all
provinces and territories, the CSA has proven its willingness and ability to
fight for fairness and equality.
Since its inception, the CSA has grown to become the pre-eminent voice of all travelling Canadians in its defense of their rights and privileges.
The CSA has proven itself to be a decisive, results-oriented organization. Its commitment and common sense when dealing with government and industry is reflected in its achievements on behalf of its members and all Canadians.
The CSA appeared before U.S. Congress to prevent U.S. legislation that threatened to reduce from 182 to just 30 days the amount of time Canadians could travel to the U.S. If you are a Canadian citizen who travelled this past year to the U.S. for more than 30 days, you can thank the CSA for its lobbying work in allowing you to travel for up to six months each year in the U.S.
In addition to advocacy on behalf of travelling Canadians, and Social Events during the winter months in the USA, the CSA offers their members:
- Insurance Program through Medipac Travel Insurance
- Snowbird Currency Exchange
- CSA Home/Auto Insurance
- CSA Auto Club
- CSA Personal Accident Insurance
