B.C. tourism and travel bear brunt of pandemic economic fallout
from British Columbia Hotel Association
In looking at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across the economy, one broad sector stands out for the extent of the damage inflicted on businesses and their employees: tourism and travel services. Closed borders, the collapse of international travel, the cancellation of conferences and conventions, the near evisceration of the airline and cruise ship industries — these developments sound a temporary death knell for what, prior to 2020, had been one of British Columbia’s most vibrant economic sectors.
