Canadian Camping and RV Council releases 2015 Economic Study on Camping Industry


Campgrounds offer an opportunity for families to spend time together, create life-long memories and discover Canada’s natural landscape. Camping creates a sense of community that is unique to this form of travel accommodation. It is also an industry that plays an important role in the health of Canada’s tourism sector and makes a significant contribution to the economy.

Campgrounds stimulate economic activity and create jobs for Canadians in urban areas and rural communities from coast to coast. Over 5.7 million campers visit Canadian campgrounds each year and the camping industry contributes a total of $4.7 billion annually to Canada’s economy.
