The Human Resources Module (HRM) is based on and rooted in the accounting framework of the Canadian Tourism Satellite Accounts (TSA), which follows the international guidelines in Recommended Methodological Framework: Tourism Satellite Account (TSA: RMF).1 In turn, the TSA: RMF is based on the accounting framework and principles of the internationally recognized System of National Accounts 1993 (SNA).2

Because the HRM uses the same framework, concepts and definitions as the Canadian TSA (CTSA), results from both can be compared. By extension, the HRM results can be readily compared to those of the Canadian System of National Economic Accounts (CSNEA), in particular, to the number of jobs, hours worked and labour income in other industries in the economy. This enhances the analytical capacity of the HRM.3
