Tourism

Experience the magic of Canada, where both French and English are spoken!

Tourism activity represents 2% of our nation’s GDP, amounting to $34.4 billion, and $17.2 billion of this amount comes from foreign tourists; this is instrumental in maintaining over 170,000 businesses and nearly 1.7 million jobs.

RDÉE Canada and its members understand the economic potential of the Canadian tourism industry and are establishing effective strategies for developing and promoting Francophone Canadian tourism.
