Issue 16-140: Visitor Entries

July 20, 2016

Visitor entries to B.C. slipped (-5.6%, seasonally adjusted) in May, due to reduced visitor traffic from the United States (-3.5%) and overseas (-9.6%). Entries from Asia (-7.0%) and Europe (-3.1%) contributed most substantially to the decline in visitors from abroad, but entries from other major regions were also down.

Nationally, visitor entries fell 1.1%, the first decrease recorded since October 2015 (-0.6%).
