National tourism indicators, second quarter 2008
Tourism spending in Canada rose 0.9% in real terms in the second quarter of 2008, the same pace as in the previous quarter. Spending by Canadians continued to advance, albeit at a slower pace, while outlays by international visitors declined for a second consecutive quarter.

Canada's population estimates, second quarter 2008 
Canada's population posted its highest quarterly growth since 1991 in the second quarter of 2008, with an increase of 125,800. The advance was mainly due to a rise in net international migration which, at 91,600, reached its highest level since the end of the 1980s.
