This report contains a review of and outlook for tourism activity in Newfoundland and Labrador, assessing the impact of COVID-19 and the public health restrictions on tourism. It examines domestic, U.S., and overseas activity.

Document Highlights

  • Last year saw a decent—though somewhat limited—rebound from the record low of 2020, thanks to the PEI Pass, which allowed for non-essential travel without the need for isolation.
  • The tourism comeback will truly kick off this summer in Prince Edward Island, as all restrictions related to the pandemic have been removed.
  • The return of cruise ships to Port Charlottetown will allow visitors to enjoy the luxurious beaches, fine dining, and prestigious golf courses that P.E.I. has on offer.
  • Total visits to the province are forecast to increase by 33 per cent this year and an additional 13 per cent next year.
  • There are significant risks to the outlook, however, especially with high inflation, scarce labour, and the possibility of future COVID-19 variants leading to more shutdowns (though we do not include such shutdowns in our forecast).
