Tourism Indicators

Making data-driven decisions is easier than ever

The following dashboards provide a holistic snapshot of key tourism insights including trends, economic impact, visitor and market intelligence, and more.

Developed through a Travel Alberta-TIAA partnership, these dashboards combine comprehensive data from cross-industry sources, making timely, relevant tourism data accessible for everyday use.

Tourism businesses, communities and industry partners can use these insights to better understand the tourism industry and identify growth opportunities. These dashboards are updated regularly to reflect the most recent datasets available and will grow as new data is added. For more information on how to use these dashboards, including specific examples, visit Understanding Tourism Indicators.
