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 Alberta's 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.

Enrollment in Tourism-Related Programs identifies which provinces have the best future recruitment opportunities. It allows us to understand which provinces we expect to see the most new graduates from in the next few years, and the sub-industries they will support.
