Issue 18-134 Tourism Room Revenues

July 31, 2018

For British Columbia, room revenues rose during the month of May. On a regional basis, Vancouver, Coast and Mountains (+25.9%), Thompson/Okanagan (+20.2%), The Islands (+17.5%), B.C. Rockies (+10.7%), and Northern B.C. (+8.0%) tourism regions all reported revenue increases compared to twelve months ago.

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.
