Saskatchewan Tourism Week was celebrated province-wide from May 27 to June 2, coinciding with Tourism Week in Canada.
The Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) stresses the significance of the industry on Canada’s economic and employment growth. “With $91.6 billion in total economic activity and 1.7 million jobs related to the sector, tourism is one of the few truly national industries that generates business in every region, province, territory, town and community,” TIAC stated.
Travel expenditures in Saskatchewan reached $2.37 billion in 2017, and there were approximately 13.6 million visits to and within the province that year. More than 67,000 Saskatchewan citizens are employed in tourism-related jobs.
Communities throughout Saskatchewan celebrated Saskatchewan Tourism Week with events and festivities that encouraged residents to discover some of the tourism resources in their own backyard and explore unique destinations and sites elsewhere in the province.
