Vancouver tourist visits to rise 3.3% in 2019: Conference Board of Canada

By Glen Korstrom for Business in Vancouver

The Conference Board of Canada’s latest Travel Markets Outlook, released January 17, paints a rosy outlook for the Canadian and Vancouver tourism sectors.

It projects that Canada will welcome 2% more overnight visitors from within Canada and international markets in 2019. The think tank projected an even higher increase for Vancouver in 2019 – a 3.3% jump in overnight visitors.

The report did not mention ratcheted up tensions between Canada and China, which in the last week have prompted both countries to release travel advisories, warning citizens against travelling to the other country. Nor did the report touch on the political uncertainty in the United Kingdom, which some fear will devolve into economic chaos if the country is unable to forge a trade deal with the European Union by March 29, when the U.K. is set to leave that economic union. That scenario could hit Britons’ discretionary spending.
