canadian-portThe port cities in Canada are expecting to receive a massive economic boost during the summer of 2017 as the 150th birthday celebration of Canada and the low value of loonie are attracting an influx of cruise fanatic travellers.

 

 

Coastal ports spread across British Columbia, Atlantic Canada and Quebec are expecting to receive an upsurge in the cruise traffic.

 

 

The Port of Montreal believes that once the $78-million revamped passenger terminal opens in May, 2017, the country will witness a 28 percent of upsurge in the number of cruise-ship passengers and crew members. They also believe that the 375th birthday celebration is one of the main reasons which would help the cruise industry in the country to flourish.

 

 

According to the CEO of the Port of Montreal, Sylvie Vachon, the port is at the heart of those celebrations.

 

 

The Tourisme Montreal has informed that the increasing number of cruise travellers would help the country to generate around $5.5 million in local spending, which would eventually raise the total revenue to $30 million.
