Businesses in The Blue Mountains are putting a lot of hope on a full of activity Canada Day long weekend and the first summer season without any restriction ever since 2019.


The tourism sector of the region was impacted harshly during the pandemic, and tour operators are now worried to get back from their financial losses.


Guy Laporte is the owner of Craigleith Manor Bed and Breakfast. He said that he is booked almost fully till September.


Laporte said that to a greater extent, people are vaccinated, and this is giving them the self-assurance to venture out and travel, and everyone wants to be in a place other than their own living room.


Officials are of the view that another year of Ontario’s Staycation Tax Credit will help in boosting tourism, and permit domestic travelers to claim 20 per cent of their lodging costs.


However, with 20 per cent of companies facing staffing deficiency, it could be difficult to come to terms with the demand.


Tara Lovell, Blue Mountain Resort public relations said that staffing is indeed a problematic task. It remains a test.

Everyone, whether that concerns the prime spots or food and beverage amenities – everyone is striving to make sure that there is sufficient staff. Operators are recommending to book early for avoiding disappointment, since the staffing scarcity could present inadequate options.
