Canadian tourism sector booms thanks to international travellers

canadaThe tourism sector of Canada has started progressing excellently owing to a series of interesting festivities to mark the nation’s 150th year as a nation.


But then it is not only tourists from inside Canada or even the United States that is leading the tourist boom.


According to a report released on 20th December the Conference Board of Canada had discovered that tourism growth from both these nations outside Canada and the U.S. is comparatively higher than either domestic tourism growth or growth in the number of U.S. visitors.


The Travel Markets Outlook report had predicted that the overnight tourist arrivals in Canada would rise by up to 3.1%.


The Conference Board of Canada expects international traveller visits to be also up by 6.2% in the year 2018. The report by the Conference Board of Canada also states that this year the biggest rise of 45.1% would come from Mexico owing to many factors including Canada’s decision to lift its visa requirement.


The report then went on to add that next year travel from China would be stimulated by the Canada-China Year of Tourism that is an initiative to raise tourism flows to both these nations.


The overnight visits to Vancouver are estimated to have risen by about 3% this year majorly fuelled by big sporting events as well as the 150th anniversary celebrations.


The Conference Board of Canada forecasts that overnight visits to the city would be rising by 3.4% next year with more visits from Asia.
