Travel abroad

4.8 million trips

June 2015


(monthly change)

United States residents made 1.9 million trips to Canada in June, up 3.3% from May. This was the highest level in over seven years.

The gain was due to an increase in car travel, as US residents took 7.7% more overnight car trips to Canada and 5.5% more same-day car trips.

Residents of overseas countries made 458,000 trips to Canada in June, down 1.0% from May.

While travel from Canada to overseas countries was stable, travel from Canada to the United States fell 1.3% from May to 3.8 million trips.

The decline was due, in large part, to a 2.7% decrease in overnight travel to the United States, which fell to 1.7 million trips. Canadian residents took 2.9% fewer overnight car trips and 2.0% fewer overnight plane trips in June compared with May.
