Description

Whether to see their friends and relatives, for business, or for pleasure, 19.6 million person-visits were made in 2006 to destinations in Alberta by residents of Alberta, other Canadians, visitors from the United States, and overseas visitors (same day and overnight trips for Alberta and other Canada, and overnight trips for the U.S. and overseas). To better understand the size and characteristics of these visitors, Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation commissioned Research Resolutions & Consulting to prepare a special analyses of the 2006 Travel Survey of Residents of Canada (TSRC) and the International Travel Survey (ITS) that are both conducted by Statistics Canada. These consumer surveys provide tourism information for travel in Alberta by Canadians and trips to the province made by U.S. and overseas visitors. This summary highlights key findings only.
