    Description:

    This publication presents estimates of government revenues attributable to 1998 tourism. The main data sources are the Provincial and Territorial Tourism Satellite Account, the Input-Output tables and T-4 tax remittance files.

    Government revenue covers receipts from-taxes on incomes (i.e., on employment earnings, corporate profits, net income of unincorporated business and government business enterprises)-contributions to social insurance plans (i.e., premiums for Canada/Quebec Pension Plan, Employment Insurance and Workers Compensation)-taxes on production and products (such as sales and property taxes)-sales of government goods and services.

    These revenue sources are broken down into parts that can and cannot be attributed to tourism, for government as a whole and for the three levels of government (federal, provincial/territorial and municipal) separately. Estimates of the government revenue generated per dollar of tourism spending are reported as well.

    The publication contains several summary tables showing revenues attributable to tourism by level of government and by source of revenue, as well as several appendix tables showing results by detailed industry and commodity. It also contains a discussion of the concepts, definitions, data sources and methods used in the study.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Canada's international travel deficit - the difference between what Canadians spend abroad and what foreigners spend in Canada - rose from $427 million in the fourth quarter of 2002 to an estimated $585 million in the first quarter of 2003. This was the first increase in Canada's travel deficit since the second quarter of 2002. Canada's travel deficit with the United States grew because both the number of trips made by Americans to Canada and their travel spending declined. Canada's travel deficit with countries other than the United States reached a new high in the first quarter because overseas visitors spent less in Canada and Canadian travellers increased their spending in overseas countries.

    Description:

    May 2003 monthly data show that Canadian travel to the United States bounced back because many Canadians took advantage of an increase in the value of the Canadian dollar. However, travel to Canada from the United States dropped for a fifth straight month, because severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) continued to take its toll.

    Travel from overseas countries to Canada also dropped in May for the sixth consecutive month. During the same period, Canadian travel to overseas destinations also declined during the month.

  • Stats in brief: 13-604-M2003040
    Description:

    The measurement of tourism has been gaining world-wide interest in the last decade. The most common framework for this measurement has been the Tourism Satellite Account (TSA). The TSA measures tourism in terms of expenditures, gross domestic product (GDP) and employment. The Canadian TSA generally follows the guidelines adopted by several international organizations, including the United Nations Statistical Commission. Statistics Canada first published a TSA in 1994. Since then, several updates have been made and timely quarterly information is now available based on the TSA. According to the World Tourism Organization (WTO), over 35 countries have either completed a TSA or are in the process of developing one. Statistics Canada is one of only two countries, the other being Norway, to develop a regional TSA. This Provincial and Territorial Tourism Satellite Account (or PTSA) allows for a comparison of tourism among regions as well as among industries within a province or territory. This publication marks the release of the second PTSA by Statistics Canada. This release for 1998 follows a report published in 2002 for 1996. Tables in this report include both the new 1998 PTSA results and revised estimates for 1996. Concepts, definitions, sources and methods, including the changes in methods, are included in the appendix.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 13-604-M2007052
    Description:

    This Canadian Tourism Satellite Account Handbook developed by Statistics Canada is intended as a guide to how the Canadian Tourism Satellite Account (CTSA) is compiled. The Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) has become the internationally recognized framework and a vital tool by which to measure tourism activity in an economy. The goal of this handbook is to make the CTSA and its inner workings as transparent as possible by bringing previous internal documentation into the public realm along side previously published documents and new documentation. By sharing the Canadian practical experiences in development of the TSA, it should benefit other countries and other interested practitioners in the process of developing and understanding TSAs.

    This handbook covers information on the relevant tourism and national accounting concepts and definitions related to the CTSA. Detailed explanations of the various survey data sources and the methods used to move this data into the TSA framework are discussed.
