Victoria Tourism Bulletins

Tourism performance continues to be strong. It is interesting to see airport, ferries and cruises ship numbers up over 2016, but hotel occupancy down for two months in a row (May and June). Could this be due to the impact of STRs?
Labour shortages (especially cooks and chefs) are becoming impossible to ignore as businesses across BC are making difficult decisions about reducing hours of operation and/or services because they don’t have enough staff.

This suggests that many visitors are making last minute travel plan decisions.
