The Canadian Resort Development Association is an industry-based association that is dedicated to furthering the ownership-based resort and leisure industry, both at home and abroad. It was founded over 29 years ago as “the Resort Timesharing Council of Canada” in response to the public’s insatiable demand for more information about typical “fee simple” (or “deeded”) timeshare products.
The goals of the Association are to encourage and maintain a high standard of ethical conduct throughout the industry and to assist in the education of Canadian industry members toward an enhanced standard of professionalism. CRDA regularly advises and guides consumers before, during and after their purchase, and it directs consumers to those member companies who have agreed to abide by CRDA’s “Code of Standards and Ethics” and its objectives.
