Good day,

Thank you for submitting your request.

Our database has some reports about the tourism industry that can meet your needs.  Below are the most recent and relevant.

Report 1 – “The conference board of Canada”, Canadian Tourism Research Institute, January 2015.

This report contains charts and graphs about outbound tourism in Canada. It also shows economic trends and the exchange rate, Canada’s aging population, outbound travel performance, and short-term outlook for sun destinations.

“Still a lot of uncertainty; 8% of those planning an outbound trip this winter have not selected a destination, and 6% of those who have selected the Caribbean have not yet determined where they will go. One-third of all overseas travelers who are still in the dreaming or investigative phases of their trip planning intend to travel to MX/CARIB.”

Report 2 – “Global Tourism Watch”, Canadian Tourism Commission, January 2014.

The results highlight how fiercely Canadian destinations have to compete with those in the US, to attract Canadian travelers beyond the adjacent region or province, especially those near-border US states, California, Florida and Nevada (Las Vegas), as well as the popular resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.
