The Canadian RV and camping industry is mobilizing its members to help its members support those on the front lines in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Along with the Canadian Camping and RV Council, the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) of Canada is asking its members are encouraged to share the image at right on social media in an effort to spread the message that help is available for those who need it.

“The Canadian RV and Camping industry is in a position to offer critical services and temporary accommodations in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. The industry has already responded to some requests for assistance from front-line workers. We are ready to offer more support,” states the message on the Go RVing Canada website.

In a message to members, RVDA of Canada states:

“Help is needed for the frontline workers, for those needing to be in self-isolation and self-quarantine and for those to orchestrate and direct the vital resources and services available.

“If you are able to offer any support or if you need help, the Canadian RV and Camping Industry is ready to step up. We have developed a dedicated support page, which will allow for those in need to get in touch with us. We will then reach out to you if a request comes from your area or for the services you have available.

“We also ask that if you are offering any services or have units available, please let the RVDA of Canada office know so that we can keep track of those that may have a request.

“We understand there are many changes happening and this form will help us make a consolidated effort and approach to getting the aid into the right hands.”
