CTC recaps 'pivotal' 2014 in annual report

A 10 per cent year-over-year increase in international arrivals contributed to the $925 million in tourism revenue generated in a ‘pivotal’ 2014, according to the Canadian Tourism Commission’s 2014 Annual Report.

The report found that all major tourism indicators for Canada rose, especially tourism revenue, GDP, employment and arrivals. Overall tourism export revenue reached $17.3 billion, maintaining Canada's tourism industry as one of the country's crucial economic drivers and top service export, with almost 627,000 jobs directly attributable to tourism. Approximately 7,500 jobs were created or protected in Canadian tourism businesses in 2014, the report found.

Markets of note for the CTC in 2014 were China and India, which each saw growth of 29 per cent and 19 cent respectively.
