Nanaimo Tourism Bulletins

We’re pleased to report that all of the tourism indicators that we report in the Nanaimo Tourism Bulletin were up in 2016 compared to 2015. Of note, is that the accommodation sector ended the year with an average annual occupancy rate of almost 70% (which compares favourably to the 2016 national average of 64.5% reported by STR). With consideration being given to the development of a new marine attraction, events centre, passenger ferry service, and one or more hotels, Nanaimo is making positive steps to further enhance its tourism profile and visitor economy.
