The Provincial and Territorial Human Resource Module of the Tourism Satellite Account (PTHRM) provides timely and reliable statistics on the human resource dimension of tourism.
Given the unique situation faced by the tourism sector in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, Statistics Canada has produced preliminary estimates of the PTHRM, up to the reference year 2018. The PTHRM incorporates data from the 2016 Census as well as the latest Labour Force Survey data. Final estimates, which will also include reference year 2019, will be available in September.
Although these data pre-date the COVID-19 pandemic, they provide an important benchmark to measure the full effect of the pandemic on the Canadian economy.
Data tables are available on request.
Note to readers
The Provincial and Territorial Human Resource Module of the Tourism Satellite Account is funded through a partnership agreement with Tourism HR Canada. It provides timely and reliable statistics on the human resource dimension of tourism. Estimates include data for Canada and the provinces and territories from 1997 to 2018.
The human resource module provides the jobs, compensation and hours worked in tourism industries and includes jobs that are attributable to demand from both tourists and non-tourists. This differs from the data for tourism jobs in the National Tourism Indicators and the Tourism Satellite Account, which take into account only those jobs that are directly attributable to demand from tourists. These variables are aggregated into five industry groups: transportation, accommodation, food and beverage services, recreation and entertainment, and travel services.
Employee jobs are defined as jobs for which the employer must complete a Canada Revenue Agency T4 form. Jobs in which workers are paid by tips or commissions are also included.
Jobs from self-employment include jobs performed by working owners of unincorporated enterprises, and members of their households who work without a wage or salary (that is, unpaid family workers).
The Economic accounts statistics portal, accessible from the Subjects module of our website, features an up-to-date portrait of national and provincial economies and their structure.
