Bottom Line: Labour Challenges Threaten Tourism's Growth

Tourism makes a significant contribution to the Canadian economy. In 2014, there were over 1.7 million jobs in the tourism sector. By 2035, spending within tourism industries could reach $287 billion. This demand for tourism goods and services will require many new jobs, but will the supply of labour be able to keep up? The projections contained within this report suggest that it will not. While the demand for labour will increase to 2.29 million jobs by 2035, the supply of labour will only be able to fill 2.05 million jobs.
