YOUR CAREER. OUR COMMITMENT.

Prior to opening Ellison Travel & Tours in 1980, I spent fourteen years in education at the high school level. As a teacher, I organized school tours, which sparked my interest in travel. In 1980 Ellison Travel & Tours was established with only two employees. Today, our numbers have grown to more than eighty at 6 locations.

As we look to the future we see great opportunities in arranging travel for visitors to our country.  Our website has been an effective way of introducing our company to potential clients outside Canada and we have organized tour groups from the United States, Europe, Asia and the South Pacific on trips across Canada.

Our dedicated team of travel planners provide you, the customer, with a wealth of first-hand experience from all corners of the globe.  Our focus is on looking after our clients’ total travel needs.  Whether it’s a vacation, corporate business, or a group tour, we look after it all.
