    Description:

    Alone deck chair. A headstone that read J. Dawson. Not your usual tourism products, but then nothing about the Titanic was ordinary. The story of the ill-fated ship that sank in 1912 has been given new life with the release of the academy award winning movie, Titanic, in January 1998.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In the first half of 1998, Canada's travel account deficit reached a ten year low of $3 billion, down almost 18% from the same period in 1997. This is a positive sign. But, it should be recognized that Canada's travel account does not measure the financial health of its tourism industry. Canada's travel account simply measures the difference between earnings from visitors travelling in Canada and spending by Canadian residents travelling abroad.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The signs are all around us ... from coffee mugs boasting that "There is life after 50" to the popularity of golf to the growing number of adult lifestyle communities: Canada's population is getting older. The aging of the baby boom generation is largely responsible for this trend, coupled with historically low fertility and mortality rates. The baby boom generation has established trends in the marketplace as they have proceeded along the demographic trail. Tourism is no exception. Almost four out of every ten Canadians travelling within Canada were baby boomers in 1996 and they spent 53% of the total domestic expenditures. This article explore how this demographic cohort is influencing many current domestic travel trends and how these may shift in the future based on the travel behaviour of older age groups.

  • 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.
