The Canadian hotel industry reported positive year-over-year performance during the second quarter of 2017. Occupancy rose 1.7% to 68%, ADR increased 6.3% to 155.99 Canadian dollars ($124.61) and RevPAR jumped 8.1% to CA$106.11 ($84.76).

HENDERSONVILLE, Tennessee—Canada’s hotel industry reported positive year-over-year results in the three key performance metrics during the second quarter of 2017, according to data from STR.

Compared with Q2 2016:

  • Occupancy: +1.7% to 68.0%
  • Average daily rate (ADR): +6.3% to CAD155.99
  • Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +8.1% to CAD106.11

The absolute occupancy level was the highest for a Q2 in Canada since 2000. Earlier this summer, STR analysts forecasted continued performance growth for the country with demand helped by celebrations around the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Three provinces saw double-digit RevPAR growth for the quarter: Ontario (+12.3% to CAD113.64), Quebec (+10.7% to CAD121.30) and British Columbia (+10.5% to CAD129.12).

Overall, nine of the 12 reporting provinces registered a RevPAR increase for the quarter.

The Yukon Territory posted the only double-digit increase in ADR (+11.0% to CAD144.68).

Manitoba experienced the greatest rise in occupancy (+7.2% to 71.5%).

The Northwest Territories reported the steepest declines in occupancy (-8.5% to 57.6%) and RevPAR (-10.4% to CAD94.15).

Saskatchewan saw the largest drop in ADR (-5.3% to CAD120.50).
