Canadians take part in a recent 15-country survey sponsored by the UNWTO

Published on : Wednesday, June 26, 2019

A considerable minority of Canadian survey respondents believe that tourism is behind increasing housing costs and aggravating crowding in public spaces. However, a distinct majority credits tourism for generating income, creating jobs and encouraging social, cultural and recreational opportunities that benefit everyone.

 

The 1,000 Canadians taking part in a recent 15-country survey sponsored by the UNWTO exhibited a more favorable view of tourism and are less likely to dwell on its drawbacks.

 

More than 58 per cent of those surveyed live in nine European countries — Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden or the United Kingdom. 2,000 respondents from Canada and the United States provided North American insight. Residents of Argentina, Australia, Japan and South Korea also took part, contributing another 3,000 responses.

 

Across the entire database, 48 per cent of respondents agreed that tourism boosts job creation, while 53 per cent of Canadians see a tourism-to-jobs connection.
