    Description:

    This paper examines whether cross-border shopping has taken flight with the loonie. It finds that measured by the number of trips to the US, the average spent per trip or even online purchases, the recent increase in cross-border shopping has been minimal, especially outside of Ontario. More notable is the drop in US visitors to Canada. Meanwhile, overseas travel in and out of Canada continues to grow rapidly.

    Description:

    This paper highlights the new Canadian Tourism Satellite Accounts (CTSA) developed by Statistics Canada. The CTSA provides an economic measure of the importance of tourism in terms of expenditures, Gross Domestic Product and employment for Canada. It permits a comparison of tourism with other industries within Canada since the concepts and methods used are based on the framework of the Canadian System of National Accounts. The study revealed that the importance of tourism increased in Canada and that international visitors have become increasingly more important to Canadian tourism since the publication of the first Tourism Satellite Account for the year 1988. This paper presents the results of the CTSA for reference year 2000.

    Description:

    The close link between our exchange rate and cross-border shopping has broken down since 2002. More broadly, this is part of a worldwide slump in travel to the US. Meanwhile, travel to Canada from overseas has risen sharply. The increasingly Asian source of this travel has favoured Western Canada as a destination.

    Description:

    This paper discusses the revision policy of Canada's National Tourism Indicators (NTI) and summarizes results from some recent studies of data revisions to the NTI. The discussion is timely, as the adoption of explicit data revision policies has been emphasized recently as an essential element in the good governance of statistical systems.

    The paper starts with a brief description of the NTI, their underlying conceptual framework, and their sources and methods. Next comes a discussion of the need for data revisions, and an outline of various types of revisions. Then a few sections are devoted to the new NTI revision policy adopted with the first quarter 2004 estimates, and the associated costs and benefits. Revision studies, which have been used to assess quality of national accounts estimates, and the database established to track data revisions to the NTI are described next. Last, results from some recent NTI data revision exercises and studies are summarized.

    Description:

    This article presents a trend analysis of the tourism trade balance between Canada and the United States using data from the International Travel Survey. Specifically, the article is an attempt to identify the factors or travel characteristics that had the greatest effect on the tourism trade balance since 1991. Pre-1991 data are not considered. The study focuses exclusively on travel between Canada and the United States because the U.S. contributes more than any other country to Canada's international travel receipts and is the country where Canadian travellers spend the most outside Canada.

    Description:

    The number of overnight trips taken in Canada by foreign residents continued to advance (2.0%) in 2002. A record number of close to 20 million foreign visitors crossed our borders in 2002. Americans accounted for four out of every five travellers, or about 16.2 million. About 3.8 million tourists came from overseas countries in 2002, down 5.3% from 2001. In 2002, Canadians made 13.0 million overnight trips to the United States, down 3.7% from 2001. Overall, the number of overnight trips to overseas destinations decreased 3.1% in 2002, compared with 2001.

    Description:

    Canada's international travel deficit - the difference between what Canadians spend abroad and what foreigners spend in Canada - rose from $427 million in the fourth quarter of 2002 to an estimated $585 million in the first quarter of 2003. This was the first increase in Canada's travel deficit since the second quarter of 2002. Canada's travel deficit with the United States grew because both the number of trips made by Americans to Canada and their travel spending declined. Canada's travel deficit with countries other than the United States reached a new high in the first quarter because overseas visitors spent less in Canada and Canadian travellers increased their spending in overseas countries.

    Description:

    May 2003 monthly data show that Canadian travel to the United States bounced back because many Canadians took advantage of an increase in the value of the Canadian dollar. However, travel to Canada from the United States dropped for a fifth straight month, because severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) continued to take its toll.

    Travel from overseas countries to Canada also dropped in May for the sixth consecutive month. During the same period, Canadian travel to overseas destinations also declined during the month.

    Description:

    The measurement of tourism has been gaining world-wide interest in the last decade. The most common framework for this measurement has been the Tourism Satellite Account (TSA). The TSA measures tourism in terms of expenditures, gross domestic product (GDP) and employment. The Canadian TSA generally follows the guidelines adopted by several international organizations, including the United Nations Statistical Commission. Statistics Canada first published a TSA in 1994. Since then, several updates have been made and timely quarterly information is now available based on the TSA. According to the World Tourism Organization (WTO), over 35 countries have either completed a TSA or are in the process of developing one. Statistics Canada is one of only two countries, the other being Norway, to develop a regional TSA. This Provincial and Territorial Tourism Satellite Account (or PTSA) allows for a comparison of tourism among regions as well as among industries within a province or territory. This publication marks the release of the second PTSA by Statistics Canada. This release for 1998 follows a report published in 2002 for 1996. Tables in this report include both the new 1998 PTSA results and revised estimates for 1996. Concepts, definitions, sources and methods, including the changes in methods, are included in the appendix.

    Description:

    The measurement of the economic impact of tourism has attracted increasing world-wide interest in the past few years. The development of a national Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) in Canada (1994), as well as a set of current quarterly indicators (1996), was a result of a demand for this information. Statistics Canada has now taken the analysis of tourism a step further with the development of the Provincial and Territorial Tourism Satellite Accounts (PTTSA).

    The development of these accounts has come primarily at the request of the tourism community in Canada. The new regional accounts increase the analytical capability and further the understanding of tourism across Canada. The PTTSA are designed to measure the importance of tourism in terms of expenditures, gross domestic product (GDP) and employment. The concepts and methods used in the PTTSA generally follow the set of international TSA guidelines adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission and strictly adhere to the principles of the System of National Accounts (SNA).

    As separate or satellite accounts, the PTTSA explicitly define the tourism industry within the national accounts statistical system and measure its economic contribution to the economy. With their foundation in the framework of the Canadian SNA, the PTTSA allow for a comparison of tourism with other industries within a province or territory, as well as showing the relative importance of tourism among provinces and territories. A tourism satellite account also provides the statistical basis for the development of tourism impact models. Thus, the PTTSA can contribute to government policy-making and business decisions concerning tourism.

    This document discusses the concepts and definitions used, and it highlights the results of the PTTSA by region for the reference year 1996. The appendices include an overview of the methodology and data sources; the detailed tables showing tourism expenditures and GDP, as well as employment for each region; a list of tourism industries and commodities; and a glossary.
