About the ProgramCanada Select was developed after extensive consumer research into what was expected and considered important at various star levels and categories of accommodations. Properties are independently evaluated by a trained Rating Advisor, ensuring consistent national criteria, processes and standards. Once a property has been categorized it is evaluated for physical quality of the property, content of facilities, services and amenities provided. A property must reach the minimum standard of a 1-star rating for clean, comfortable accommodations to be rated. All properties, regardless of their star level, must also meet stringent cleanliness and state of repair guidelines. Each category and star level has distinct criteria which must be achieved. In Newfoundland and Labrador, a Canada Select rating is required in order to receive a Tourist Establishment License from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation.
