Issue 16-157: Visitor Entries

August 18, 2016

Visitor entries into Canada via B.C. climbed (+0.9%, seasonally adjusted) in June. Fewer Americans (-1.3%) crossed the border but June saw more tourists come to B.C. from overseas locations (+7.9%), mainly as a result of an increase in travellers from Asia (+14.5%).

Nationally, visitor entries to Canada were up slightly (+0.5%) from the previous month, as non-U.S. (+4.6%) visits rose. Alberta (+9.0%) and Quebec (+1.3%) carried a large share of the traveller influx.
