Tourism pictures

Throughout 2013 we have been advocating how important tourism is to the Canadian economy. For our network of chambers and boards of trade across the country it is a vital sector for their communities

The travel and tourism sector is one of Canada’s largest generators of GDP, contributing close to $80 billion to its economy annually, and accounting for more than 600,000 jobs. Visitors to Canada spend more than $15 billion annually. So important is the sector that most municipalities and provinces have tourism marketing organizations, including many of the chambers of commerce across Canada.

The impact of the sector is very widespread. Unfortunately, Canada has failed to respond to these shifts with the obvious business strategies a supplier should use to confront deteriorating market conditions.
