Stellar performances in overnight arrivals from Destination Canada’s eleven international markets in July 2016 of last year (+12%) cast a shadow over what appeared to be subdued results in July 2017 of this year (-0.5% over July 2016) and served to hide robust growth from most Destination Canada markets (+6% annual average since 2015).
