Canadians made fewer trips abroad in January: StatsCan

  • Print

OTTAWA - Statistics Canada says Canadians made 5.5 million trips abroad in January, down 0.4 per cent from December.

Travel to the United States rose 0.2 per cent in January to 4.8 million trips, but this increase was outweighed by a drop in trips overseas.

Canadians made 769,000 trips to countries other than the United States in January, down 4.3 per cent from December and the lowest level since December 2011.

Travel to Canada remained unchanged at 2.1 million trips in January, as an increase in trips from the United States offset a decrease from overseas countries.

More than 1.7 million visitors came to Canada from the United States, up 0.2 per cent from December.

Visits to Canada by overseas travellers declined 1.1 per cent to 387,000
