Issue 18-203 Tourism Room Revenues
November 30, 2018
Overall room revenues in British Columbia rose during the month of September compared to the same month last year. On a regional basis, Northern B.C. (+18.2%), B.C. Rockies (+10.6%), Vancouver, Coast, and Mountains (+8.3%) and The Islands (+2.7%) all reported growth in room revenues while Thompson/Okanagan (-4.1%) saw a revenue decline compared to twelve months ago.
Note: 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 analyzed with this in mind.
