Only 15 Precent of Tourists Visiting Manitoba Are From Outside The Province

It turns out that only 15 percent of tourists that visit Manitoba are from outside of the province.


That’s according to the latest data from Statistics Canada, who says that Manitobans accounted for 85 percent of all tourists in the province, with visitors from other provinces coming in at 10 percent, American visitors at four percent and overseas visitors at just one percent.


Despite only accounting for one percent of all visitors, those from overseas accounted for 124 million dollars, or eight percent, of all tourism revenue.

The announcement of Manitoba being named to the Lonely Planet’s list of best travel destinations in the world for 2019 was met with excitement from many people, including the Premier, though some travel experts are saying they can’t take credit for anything other than providing funding for tourism and economic development agencies.
