Canada Tourism Commission releases Tourism Snapshot - 2007 Year-in-Review

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 22 /CNW/ - The Canada Tourism Commission (CTC) today
released the online publication Tourism Snapshot - 2007 Year-in-Review.
    Michele McKenzie, the CTC's President and CEO, noted that "This annual
publication provides a valuable base of information that is used for
decision-making and strategic business planning as the CTC strives to make
Canada the destination of choice in the nine international tourism markets on
which it focuses."

    Tourism Snapshot - 2007 Year-in-Review covers three areas:

    -   Tourism Highlights focus on the year's activities by including facts
        and figures on tourism spending (domestic and international); tourism
        GDP and employment; Canada's Tourism Deficit; and the volume of
        international travellers (overseas, US and domestic markets);

    -   The section on Travellers' Characteristics supplies a table outlining
        a wealth of data on international trip characteristics such as
        expenditures, activities, places visited and length of stay for each
        of the CTC's nine core markets;

    -   The third area provides an analysis of the CTC's Core Markets that
        expands on the data included in the Travellers' Characteristics
        table, with key highlights that summarize the salient points for each
        of the nine international core markets

    Tourism Snapshot - 2007 Year-in-Review is now available on the CTC web

    Sources of information for the annual review include the International
Travel Survey (ITS), and the National Tourism Indicators (NTI). The
publication is prepared based on information released by Statistics Canada in
June 2008.
