Travel abroad

4.8 million trips

July 2015


(monthly change)

Travel between Canada and overseas countries reached record highs in July.

Residents of overseas countries made 473,000 trips to Canada in July, up 2.5% from June and the highest figure since record keeping began in 1972.

Travel from Canada to overseas countries also set a new record with 979,000 trips in July, up 1.6% from June.

Travel from Canada to the United States decreased 0.9% to 3.8 million trips in July, mainly as a result of a 2.1% decline in same-day car trips.

Travel from the United States to Canada declined 1.5% in July compared with June. This was due to a decrease in car travel, as US residents took 5.4% fewer overnight car trips and 0.9% fewer same-day car trips to Canada.
