This report contains a review of and outlook for tourism activity in Quebec, assessing the impact of COVID-19 and the public health restrictions on tourism. It examines domestic, U.S., and overseas activity as well as the situation in Montréal and Québec City.

Document Highlights

  • The recovery of Quebec’s tourism industry is expected to make significant strides over the remainder of the year as pandemic-related restrictions are eased.
  • Total visits to Quebec are forecast to increase by 24 per cent this year.
  • The reopening of the Canadian border in August to vaccinated American travellers provided a welcome boost to tourism in the province.
  • Lingering COVID-19 effects will slow the revival of visitor numbers to the two largest urban centres, Montréal and Québec City, which rely heavily on international visitors.
  • The threat of novel coronavirus variants and the uncertainty surrounding the rollout of the vaccine passport for out-of-province visitors confers a degree of downside risk to the recovery.
