Canadians with Citibank cards may enjoy the benefits that come with it, including travel and insurance perks. But as of September 22, 2019, Citibank has announced it is slashing those benefits – particularly the ones associated with travel.
The benefits that will no longer be honored are worldwide and domestic perks, include travel, baggage, and emergency benefits:

90-day return protection

Unfortunately, as of August 31 the card will cease to exist. This is really too bad as it is the best No Annual Fee Travel Rewards Credit Card in Canada (as ranked by Rewards Canada) and was a big step in More Rewards expanding to a nationwide coalition rewards program. That means we have now lost the top 2 no annual fee travel rewards cards in Canada! The other being the American Express Blue Sky credit card. In the coming months there will be two more no annual fee cards (1 travel + 1 cash back card) that will also be pulled from our market however we aren’t allowed to disclose which cards those are just yet…
