The CTC offers data, market intelligence, industry analysis and e-business initiatives to support strategic and operational decisions.

If you're in the tourism business, you've got questions: how will the value of the Canadian dollar affect American traveller numbers to Canada? Where do most of our visitors come from? How much do Chinese travellers spend on vacation here? What are the hot, emerging and long-term travel trends this year? The Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) has the answers.

Study the profiles of our 12 geographic markets, which includeeconomic and market highlights, travellers' characteristics, population forecasts, air capacity, trip purposes, preferred activities and more. 

Or stay in the know with our primary range of tourism updates. Tourism Snapshot gives quick and easy top-line market intelligence every month as well as an annual set of market highlights. Our quarterly Travel Characteristics reports take an in-depth look at where visitors are staying, how long for and what they are spending on. While twice a year the Tourism Intelligence Bulletin and Short-Term Competitive Outlook take the current tourism temperature as well as looking to the future in international markets.
