Tourism Labour Force Trends
Canada’s tourism sector is composed of five distinct but related industry groups: accommodation, food and beverage services, recreation and entertainment, transportation, and travel services.
Tourism labour force indicators help support Alberta businesses planning and policy decisions. Understanding the general direction of the Alberta Tourism Labour Force, helps us identify potential issues and areas that can be improved. Monitoring this in other key Canadian provinces can identify employment opportunities, like which province is our best option for recruiting. You can also layer in enrollment in Tourism-Related Programs to identify which provinces have the best future recruitment opportunities. For example, within the next few years which provinces we expect to see the most new graduates from and the sub-industries will they support.
