The Travel & Tourism Industry

In Canada tourism is a growing industry:

$102 billion

of which $22.1 billion is export revenue

21.1 million

international visitors in 2018

1.8 million jobs

largest employer of Canadian youth

225,000

businesses across Canada

 

But the competition is fierce:

  • Travel and tourism is a fiercely competitive global industry and while tourism to Canada is stronger than ever, we are being outperformed by competing countries for a greater share of the global tourism market.
  • Canada still has not regained enough ground to be in the UNWTO Top Ten countries for visitation as it once was.
  • Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the world – it’s important to continue to invest in tourism while it is performing well to continue showcasing Canada to the world and grow tourism’s economic impact.
