This paper highlights the new Provincial-Territorial Human Resource Module (PTHRM) of the Tourism Satellite Account. Whereas data were previously available at the national level only, Human Resource Module (HRM) data are now available for the provinces and territories, within the constraints of data availability, confidentiality and reliability.

The HRM serves as a useful planning and forecasting tool for policy makers in the tourism, employment and training areas. Various tourism-affiliated agencies, academics, and decision-makers in tourism will also be able to use it for research and analysis, planning and development. The PTHRM provides additional detail by province and territory.

Outlining the rest of the report, the scope of the study is described in the next section, followed by notes on methodology. Selected results are then discussed to demonstrate analytical uses of the PTHRM, followed with a selection of relevant data tables.

Appendices A and B discuss the accounting frameworks behind the PTHRM, key tourism concepts and definitions from the Canadian Tourism Satellite Account (CTSA), and various labour concepts and definitions from the Canadian System of National Accounts (CSNA). Appendix C summarizes the data sources and Appendix D outlines the general methodology used. Appendix E provides a list of North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) industries included in the industry groups used by the HRM, while Appendix F lists the occupations used by the HRM from the National Occupational Classification for Statistics (NOC-S). A summary of the tables available upon request in the HRM is included in Appendix G. A glossary of terms and a list of references are also provided.
