In June 2019, Canada welcomed a record 2.76 million international overnight arrivals, slightly ahead of the previous June peak set last year (+2%). Year-to-date international overnight arrivals to Canada expanded by 4% to reach a new record peak for the first half of the year.

Overnight arrivals from Destination Canada’s long-haul markets were up 7% year-over-year and reached a new peak in June 2019. Direct air arrivals gained a healthy +4%, offsetting a continued decline in air arrivals via the US (-4%), which only accounted for 13% of total arrivals from these nine markets. Year-to-date arrivals from Destination Canada’s long-haul markets were up +6% compared to the same period last year. These strong numbers were supported by France, Mexico and Germany, who all recorded double-digit growth in direct air arrivals in June 2019 (17%, 16% and 12%, respectively).
