Issue 17-157: Tourism Room Revenues

November 30, 2017

For most of British Columbia, room revenues rose during the month of September. On a year-over-year basis, B.C. Rockies (+9.4%), Vancouver, Coast and Mountains (+6.3%), Thompson/Okanagan (+5.7%), and The Island (+5.6%) tourism regions all reported increases in revenues, while the Northern B.C. (‑2.2%) tourism region saw a decrease in room revenue.

The room revenue estimates are based on the municipal and regional district tax (MRDT) of participating communities. Participation in the MRDT is optional and as such, not all communities are included and the regional totals are summations of participating communities only. Therefore, the room revenue figures should be analysed with this in mind.
