As licence professional tour operators in Quebec offering services to our community, THROWBACK TOURS sets high ethical standards for business conduct. We also apply these standards to ourselves, Volunteers and our Business Partners.
The THROWBACK TOURS Business Code of Ethics (the “Code”) helps ensure that THROWBACK TOURS Business Partners etc share our commitment to an ethical senior center. For the purposes of this Code, “THROWBACK TOURS” refers to any The Day Center, and any other THROWBACK TOURS-affiliated entity. “Business Partners” refers to suppliers that contract to provide THROWBACK TOURS with any product or service and other organizations that contract with THROWBACK TOURS to accomplish its mission, and includes the employees, agents and contractors of Business Partners. “Business Partners” does not include THROWBACK TOURS Accredited Businesses or THROWBACK TOURS National Partners unless they form a contractual relationship with THROWBACK TOURS beyond their accreditation by THROWBACK TOURS or membership in THROWBACK TOURS.
THROWBACK TOURS expects that Business Partners will conduct their business with or on behalf of THROWBACK TOURS in compliance with the Code. As appropriate, preference will be given to Business Partners that demonstrate greater commitment to this Code and ethical standards generally.
