Travel to Canada fell 3.9% in November compared with October. The decrease was largely the result of fewer US travellers to Canada.

Travel by American residents to Canada declined 4.7% to 1.7 million trips in November.

Declines were recorded in trips from the United States for all transportation modes, with car travel reporting the sharpest decrease. Same-day car travel fell 5.3% to 578,000 trips, while overnight car travel was down 6.1% to 550,000 trips.

Travel to Canada from overseas countries decreased 1.1% in November to 444,000 trips.

In the other direction, Canadian travel abroad declined 0.6%, as a result of fewer trips by Canadians to the United States.

Canadian residents made 4.3 million trips to the United States, down 1.0% compared with October. A drop of 2.3% in same-day car trips to the United States accounted for most of the decline.
