                     What are the implications of legal changes and new
                     risk landscapes for Canadian employers? What are
                     the most common obstacles to effective travel
    WHAT:            risk management within organizations?

                     These questions and more will be answered in Duty
                     of Care in Action: Canadian Law Redefining Global
                     Business Travel, a complimentary webinar.

                     Natural disasters, social-economic uncertainty
                     and political unrest are reshaping "Duty of Care"
                     for Canadian employers and organizations. In
                     addition, recent changes to occupational health
                     and safety legislation and the expansion of
                     criminal negligence laws make the protection of
                     business travelers a legal and moral imperative
                     in Canada. Mr. Elson and Mr. Hyde will explore
                     today's business travel risk landscape and share
                     best practices for meeting legal and moral
                     imperatives for protecting traveling employees.
