Canada Source Tourism Market Dynamics
The recovery of international travel from Canada is expected to be gradual, with projections indicating that it may not reach pre-pandemic levels until 2024. The number of international departures is anticipated to slightly decrease in 2023 before experiencing a compound annual growth rate of more than 6% between 2023 and 2027. The Canadian tourism market will heavily rely on leisure and visiting friends and relatives (VFR) travel to spearhead its recovery efforts.
Furthermore, domestic tourist expenditure remained relatively stable from 2017 to 2019 but experienced a significant decline in 2020 due to the pandemic. However, there was a noticeable recovery in expenditure in 2021, particularly in sectors such as accommodation, entertainment, and foodservice.

Canada Source Tourism Market Segments
The key segments in the Canada source tourism market are domestic tourism and outbound tourism. Domestic tourism was the leading segment in the Canada source tourism market in 2022.
Domestic Tourism: During 2017 to 2019, the number of domestic trips remained relatively stable in Canada, with a slight decline in 2018 and 2019. However, in 2020, there was a significant drop in the total number of domestic trips, likely due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated travel restrictions. As travel restrictions began to ease in 2021, there was a slight recovery, but the number of trips remained lower compared to pre-pandemic levels. For the upcoming years, 2023 to 2027, a gradual increase in domestic trips can be expected, indicating a potential recovery and growth in domestic tourism over time.
Outbound Tourism: Transportation and retail have consistently been the top spending channels for Canadian tourists abroad. Canada is known for its high airport taxes and user fees which adds a significant cost to the ticket price. It is important to consider the impact of these fees on the overall cost of travel to Canada. It is essential for the government, airports, and industry stakeholders to find a balance between funding airport operations and infrastructure development while maintaining affordability for travelers. This may involve reviewing the fee structure, exploring alternative sources of funding, or implementing strategies to enhance the value and quality of services provided at airports.
